About Us

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

-Martin Luther King jR.

ELITE Communities seeks to Equip Leaders to Impact, Transform, and Empower communities by connecting them to essential tools and our support network to exchange knowledge.  Founded originally as Woods Consulting years ago by visionary, thought leader, and social justice advocate, LaTonja Ellis, our company exists to help communities mobilize, excel, and foster change. 


ELITE Communities is more than just a typical consulting company; we are your neighborhood partner.  We believe that every community can become ELITE, but people must-have resources, strong leadership, and a shared vision for the future to obtain this.  We work to eliminate systemic barriers by creating environments where community stakeholders can generate innovative ideas, build their capacity, and launch new initiatives that will make a difference in society. 



We understand the power of collective impact.  We construct opportunities for people from different faith traditions, social sectors, and communities to work together on projects that help them to design and execute a plan to obtain their dream career and life. 



We believe that a strong leader can pave a path that can change the course of history.  By equipping the next generation of leaders with the knowledge and tools they need to excel, we help our partners to have a transformational impact on their company, social sector, and community.



We value the life of every human being and seek to create opportunities for those who normally don’t have a seat at the table to have their voices heard.  Through coaching, training and public forums, we empower individuals to advocate for change and the resources they need to improve their quality of life.
