Organizational transformation begins with a comprehensive assessment followed by visioning and strategic planning. Prioritizing community voices throughout the process will help build strong coalitions and deep community engagement.
Your organization's first step toward sustainability and community integration is an honest and unflinching assessment of internal structures and external engagement strategies. The assessment analyzes past and present forces shaping your organization's priorities, identifies what is working and what needs to change, and how to make that change happen.

Vision identifies what success looks like when your organization employs its unique assets to meet specific community needs. Mission is the daily work that makes your vision a reality. Values are the guideposts your organization uses to implement its mission. Strategic planning begins once vision, mission, and values are identified. A dynamic and flexible strategic plan outlines goals, strategies to achieve those goals, needed resources, timeline, and measurements to ensure the plan is achieving its stated goals.
