“As we were launching a new program, Fifth House Consulting, under the leadership of Rachel Gooen, provided us with a detailed and extremely valuable Community Readiness Assessment to help guide our work. We were impressed with the usefulness of this product, and were very happy to work with Rachel and her Team. She respected our time, guided us along the way, and provided a great service. Fifth House Consulting also facilitated a successful one-day strategic planning session for Climate Smart Missoula, and we hope to work with this great Team again.”

Amy Cilimburg | Executive Director, Climate Smart Missoula
