"Sherrye Willis organized, directed, and managed the “administrative backbone” for the Working in Neighborhoods Strategically (WINS) effort from 2014-2016. Sherrye demonstrated able leadership, coupled with effective interpersonal skills and relationship-building skills. As a result, WINS did an excellent job creating a common agenda, a continuous communication program, and executing five mutually reinforcing strategies. I enjoyed partnering with Sherrye Willis to implement the WINS strategic agenda and improve the lives of the residents of Fair Park/South Dallas."

From 2003-2006, Greater Works served as the Foundation for Community Empowerment’s capacity building partner in the development of our successful, one of a kind, outcomes-based Building Capacity Building Communities program, made possible through a Compassion Capital Fund grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families. As part of the initiative, Alliance worked with us to train over 125 Dallas grass roots organizations in organizational development and to distribute over $1.3 million in sub-grants."
