Strategic Program Expansion with Tzedek DC

The client

Tzedek DC’s mission is to safeguard the legal rights of low-income DC residents with low incomes dealing with the often devastating consequences of unjust, abusive, and illegal debt collection practices, as well as other consumer protection problems like credit reporting issues, identity theft, and predatory lending.

The project

Compass awarded Tzedek DC a pro bono strategic alignment consulting project to aid in the evaluation of a new program. After an intensive five months of research and analysis, the Compass team delivered findings and recommendations to Tzedek DC and created tools to aid in operationalizing the recommendations.


Tzedek DC is implementing the team’s recommendations and will add financial counseling wraparound services. In addition, a volunteer was asked to join the board of directors.
