In 2017 we set out to better understand who we are, where we've been and where we're going.
In partnership with The Collective Academy, we formed a strategic plan committee made up of staff, volunteers, board members and participants past and present. Their task was to reframe our vision, mission and values and develop goals (and tactics to achieve those goals) that would strengthen our impact in the community over the next 3 years—and beyond.
This committee embraced the work at hand, investing time and energy in identifying our strengths as well as areas where we could stand to improve. The resulting strategic plan, approved by our board of directors in December 2017 gives us great reason to be excited as we work each and every day to keep our vision in focus: A home with no borders, impacting lives to create powerful communities.
Our strategic plan committee focused on 4 key areas to address and identified the following goals:
