Strategic Plan 2018-23

Brighter Futures: our strategic plan 2018-23

Brighter Futures logo

In June 2013, we launched a 5-year Strategic Plan, entitled Brighter Futures. The plan built on our assets and strengths and directed our efforts and resources to our most critical priorities. Five years later, we developed our current strategic plan, having travelled many roads, imagined and tested new ideas, and embraced and implemented some key strategic milestones. Today, as an agency, we are stronger and more united and passionate about our mission and vision.

Our Strategic Plan has been crafted with extensive input from staff, partners, youth, foster parents and biological parents. Our plan builds on our Catholic heritage and our traditions of excellence while charting a distinctive course forward. A future that ensures Brighter Futures for the children, youth and families we serve.
