About Us

Our Story

Kaliráh Strategies is a team of purposeful and dedicated professionals who are passionate about using our knowledge, skills and talents to make a positive impact on people, organizations and communities.

Ramona Houston, Principal, created Kaliráh Strategies as a result of her work in project management and community relations. She saw the need for professionals who have expertise in project management/execution as well as a keen understanding of diversity, that could implement the visions of philanthropists, organizations and businesses who seek to reach, serve and impact diverse communities.

Ramona created the word Kaliráh to represent her professional work and purpose. Kali is the Hindu goddess with many arms. Ra is the Egyptian god of the sun. RAH, which has the same pronunciation as Ra, is the acronym for Ramona’s full name. With the words combined, Kaliráh is the business with many arms that brings light into the world. Kalirah Strategies is a division of Kaliráh, Inc.
