Vision 40 Strategic Plan

Five Year Plan for Agency Growth and Stability 2016-2021

Vision 40 Strategic Plan

Here’s our five year plan for agency growth and stability, 2016-2021.

As we work with children and families in crisis over the next 5 year we willl: • Serve 5,000 children and families • Roll out our model across the state and beyond • Prove that our work has a lasting impact • Raise the funds to build a nest egg for our future We look forward to sharing our progress with you.

We plan to raise the dollars needed to build a nest egg for our future. We’re calling it our PHuture PHund. This PHund will provide a solid foundation to support our growth and expanded services through our 40th year and for generations of children and families.

In addition to meeting our “Vision 40” goals over the next 5 years, we must also sustain Providence House for many years to come.

We’ve already begun to do this. We are nationally accredited by CARF, we’ve partnered with a top research university, and our outcomes have been published in a national journal.

Our model is unique and we know it works. We want to prove the impact and look at long-term results.

We will continue to respond to crisis nurseries across the U.S. that want embrace the Providence House model.

There are 87 other counties in Ohio where children are suffering abuse and neglect. We will look beyond our campus and county to ensure that Every Child in Ohio has access to a place like Providence House.

We know we must do this because Cuyahoga County is ranked #1 in the state with the most children facing abuse and neglect. Our vision is that “children everywhere are raised in safe, loving families, free from abuse and neglect.”

We’ll also go beyond our campus to help families in their communities and in their homes throughout our county.

We will accomplish that by maximizing bed capacity in our Crisis and Wellness Nurseries and expanding services to parents on our campus.

We will protect and empower 5,000 children and families in the next 5 years. This is a 35% increase in our current service levels.

Our “Vision 40” plan will guide us through the next 5 years to our 40th anniversary. We have 4 goals.

In 35 years we’ve served 8,000 children in crisis, but there are thousands more who need us.

Here’s our five year plan for agency growth and stability, 2016-2021.
