Consulting Services

Working with residents, business owners, and community members requires an understanding of past and current policies and structures that have shaped Chinatown into the nuanced and resilient community it is today. As members of the community, we take this systems lens into all consulting work we do, and we take a research evidence-based approach in the recommendations we share.

Research

By identifying challenges and opportunities in the spaces we operate in, we look deeper into the impact of changes on a community’s culture and accessibility. Through culturally appropriate design methods, we offer research services including conducting primary and secondary research, data analysis, and reporting on findings with recommendations.

Policy Analysis

Hua foundation applies an aerial view and intersectional analysis framework to the policy work we do. We know that issues are interconnected, and there are existing and long-standing structures in place that have led to some of the societal outcomes policies are trying to support and improve. We know change doesn’t happen overnight, and we apply our research and engagement design and delivery methods to provide sound policy analysis and recommendations looking at roots of the issues.

We have brought our policy expertise to the following tables:

Program Development

We support organizations and businesses who want to put into practice sustainability, equity, and inclusion, but may need some support in doing so.

We develop programs alongside stakeholders through:

  • Working in collaboration to develop an educational or capacity building program;
  • Drawing out the identity and spaces that we are working to protect; and
  • Applying place-based learning methods.
