The purpose of the Strategic Framework is to communicate what kind of organization we are, what we do, and why we do it; guide the decisions of our board and staff; and inform our operational plan.

The strategic framework is informed by our vision and mission statements, which have been revised for 2016.

Our Vision

A community in which all people are full and valued participants

Our Mission

Through rigorous research, detailed analysis, and community engagement, we deepen community understanding of social planning issues, influence policy, and spark collaborative actions that lead to positive social change.
