What People Are Saying

In December 2017, Ward Home retained Vanessa S. Dodds M.Ed and Connections 4 Success L.L.C to conduct a risk assessment of our Supervised Independent Living Program for foster youth. After an initial meeting to explain our goals and desired outcomes to Vanessa she submitted a very thorough proposal that showed she researched Ward Home and independent living programs for foster youth in great detail. During the risk assessment Vanessa kept both the Executive Director and Program Director updated on a regular basis. When unsure on a subject she asked for clarification rather than guessing. The assessment was done professionally and in a manner that made it easy and comfortable for all the staff and teens to respond in an open and honest way. The final report was completed in a quality manner and easy to understand. It included both the identified risk and recommendations on how to reduce the risk. I would recommend Vanessa and Connections for 4 Success L.L.C. for risk assessments and other related projects.

I'm writing this recommendation to convey our gratitude to Vanessa for her professional services to our company. Vanessa’s report on the qualitative and quantitative analyses of our employees functioning was very helpful. Her suggestions and solutions to make our organization better were most helpful. I’m glad we met and look forward to utilizing Connections 4 Success’ services again. I would recommend Vanessa and Connections 4 Success to any business that needs objective and subjective data to learn about the culture and operations of their organization.

I recently worked with Vanessa to create an onboarding and training curriculum for new staff. This was an area of frustration for me in the past given the amount of time it would take away from my day-to-day activities. Vanessa was able to create a curriculum that conveys clearly the message I want each staff member to communicate. Vanessa addressed every aspect that I believe was needed to help the staff provide an exceptional client experience. I am so pleased and happy with the end product!
