Adelante Consulting, Inc. holds Laboratory contracts for environmental work and strives to be a good neighbor by supporting more than 30 regional nonprofit organizations.

During the past 14 years, the Santa Fe-based, woman-owned small business has evolved into one of the Lab’s major subcontractors, which means it is required to implement a community development plan. The company’s regional assistance is extensive. And since employees are also owners and share in company profits, they have a say when those profits are directed elsewhere, which helps explain the range of organizations it supports.

Some of the company’s major efforts include:

Quivira Coalition’s annual conference: This organization seeks to “ build resilience by fostering ecological, economic and social health on western landscapes through education, innovation, collaboration and progressive public and private land stewardship.” This year’s conference, scheduled for November 14-16 in Albuquerque, will focus on what a growing world population will require from agriculture.

Cochiti Community Development Corporation: After extensive fire damage last year, Cochiti Pueblo needed to obtain grants and other support for environmental protection and restoration. Adelante is helping make available consulting services from a technical project manager (and tribal member) who is helping guide the Development Corporation through the complex federal funding requirements.

Espanola Valley Fiber Arts Center: This company is supporting a feasibility study to potentially reopen a wool mill in north central New Mexico. It is also working to support agriculture and to keep the fiber arts traditions of New Mexico alive. (http://www.evfac.org/)
