Our mission is simple yet powerful: to deliver solutions that support and strengthen an organization's greatest asset—its people.
CommuniCare Partners (CCP) was founded on a simple yet powerful principle: people are the greatest asset of any organization. CCP helps bring this belief to life through advisory services for executives, senior leaders, physicians, business owners, boards of directors, teams and organizations. By partnering with those we serve, we provide solutions to the “people-part” of doing business. Our specialty sectors include non-profit/human service, health-related organizations, private physician practices and growing small businesses.
PEOPLE are the foundation of what we do. We treat our clients and colleagues with trust and respect, and constantly strive to bring out the best in both ourselves and those we serve.
COLLABORATION reflects how we work, whether internally as a team, or as we partner with our clients. Together, we create the best possible solutions for your organization.
EXCELLENCE is our commitment to providing the highest quality in all that we do—and always with unwavering integrity.
SERVICE to our clients is our top priority. We also believe in the importance of service to our community and giving back. Plus, in order to better serve non-profit and charitable organizations, CCP is registered with the Charities Bureau of the NYS Attorney General's Office as a Professional Fundraiser.
