Strategic Plan Update

The Healing Place Board of Directors updated the strategic plan of the agency in 2011-12. The former strategic plan guided the agency for the past five years and members of the board hope the new plan will lead them into 2013-14.

Executive Director, Angie Alley, reports that one of the assumptions of the previous plan was that the agency would experience an increase of 25% in the need for services, when in fact, the agency has experienced a 90% increase over the past five years.

The Board of Directors identified the three following goals for the 2012-13 fiscal year:

  1. Negotiate a new lease on the current space at 100B Chadwick Square Court, Hendersonville, NC
  2. Consider expanding the agency mission to include other violent crimes by December, 2012. If concluded the agency should expand, apply for GCC Underserved Funding in January, 2013 and develop a marketing plan by June, 2013 to educate the community.
  3. Hold a successful fundraising luncheon in April, 2013 that can become the agency’s signature event to be duplicated year after year.
