"We were undergoing a transformation and we grew significantly and needed HR expertise. Mission Edge provided that expertise to us instead of us having to hire someone during a transition phase to do the work. I appreciate that ME knew what services Habitat for Humanity needed, exactly how much we needed, and then met us where we were."

"Mission Edge has added so very much to our organization by primarily freeing our staff from administrative concerns thereby enabling our organization to focus on fundraising for the Parkinson's research project we support. Our donations increased dramatically last year due in part to the incredible and efficient Administrative support provided by the Mission Edge team."
