Our Clients

Committed to Making the World a Better Place

Working with Organizations that Make a Difference

The Vella Group clients are guided by a social conscience and are committed to a sustainable world that delivers tangible human services and heartfelt kindness. Their moral compass is set for the greater good. Many people face obstacles that are too formidable to overcome without an outstretched hand. Our clients offer that hand. They do this because they understand the social determinants of health, both physical and mental, they ask the right questions, and they offer the most effective solution.

The issues are many: food insecurity, homelessness, lack of transportation, substance abuse, mental illness, disability barriers, learning lag, lack of resources for BIPOC-owned businesses. Our clients know this world. They seek to change it. We help them succeed.
