Our roadmap to success

The key components of a successful nonprofit are a strong Case for Support coupled with a detailed Strategic Plan.  For the past 20 years, we have diligently updated both of these documents to reflect our mission and purpose in our Case for Support and the strategies and tactics we plan to employ to fulfill our mission as outlined in our Strategic Plan.  With the help and generosity of thousands of people, we pursue our vision and ensure that we measure our success with mission impact, efficiency and effectiveness.  Our guiding precedent is our Vision 2030 and Beyond Strategic Plan with detailed strategy map and outline.  While this plan was first unveiled at the 2019 meeting, the Board adopted formally adopted the plan at its March 2020 Board Meeting. The five main areas of the plan include:

  • Mission Expansion
  • Mission Brand
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Operational Excellence
  • Program Excellence

snapshot of the initiatives is available here and plans are in support of both 1.0 Mission Expansion and 2.0 Mission Brand.  These plans include a detailed analysis an and feasibility study for the first ever dedicated respite center in a joint venture with Woodloch Resort.  For a detailed overview of this plan with a complete analysis of past history, program outcomes and strategy map, click here.
