FQA Institute for Social Impact
We are a non-profit consulting firm that focuses on addiction
We help organizations design and scale solutions in support of people with substance use disorder and their families.
We intend to help foster a high-performing ecosystem that brings together research, non profits, start-ups and corporations to design, optimize and scale long-term, data-driven solutions to substance use disorder.
We are effective because our values inform all that we do:
Curious: Never assuming we know more than we do
Humble: Recognizing value in every person and every opinion
Provocative: Respectfully pushing boundaries with a passion for debate
Optimistic: Injecting a positive mindset to all challenges
We will achieve our mission by working across four program areas.
