n 2015, we initiated a Five-Year Strategic Planning Process.

Our goal?

To hold our partners, our Board of Directors and our team accountable to the needs of our community. The strategic plan has since served as a clear bench mark for programs and a road map to success. Since 2015, we’ve seen improvements in all four lines of business.

In 2020, we initiated a new strategic planning process with our staff, Board of Directors, partners, clients, and residents. We looked back on the major successes and continued challenges in our mission to revitalize the heart of Baton Rouge. We talked about ways to improve our strategies and achieve our goals.

I'm very proud of the evaluation process our team led, including surveying over 100 residents and 200 physical spaces in our target community. Each Program Director worked with their respective team to dig deep and identify where they wanted their program to be in five years.

To read the results of this process, take a look at our strategic plan:
