Current Goals To date, agency performance goals have largely been built around grant requirements. In 2016, the Board of Directors focused on restructuring, including securing a new Executive Director and Development Director, as well as an in depth strategic planning process to set goals for 2017-2020. Strategic planning has been completed and six overarching goals have been identified: 1. Sound leadership ensures long term growth and stability. 2. Agency wide systems drive business processes, fiscal management, human resources, and physical plant management. 3. Sustainable partnerships allow Aliveness to respond to service gaps in housing, employment, mental and chemical health support to support members’ holistic needs. 4. Consistent, compelling messages attract broad donor and community support. 5. Programs demonstrate equity across race, gender, age and are welcoming to all. 6. A comprehensive evaluation, review, and development process ensures continued quality program delivery for members.
