Strategic Plan 2015 - 2020
The Context for Strategic Planning
HPRP is an effective and well respected provider of direct legal services and advocacy to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The organization was successful in executing its last strategic plan, which provided a roadmap to:
- Raise new money to enhance stability and growth of organizational finances
- Pursue growth of the pro bono program
- Focus legal services and staff resources to improve effectiveness
- Strengthen collaborations and strategic partnerships to achieve leverage
- Increase visibility and raised awareness about homelessness on local, state and national levels
The successful execution of the Strategic Plan 2009 – 2014 has left HPRP on solid footing to embark on another strategic plan. The organization has a strong desire to grow by increasing both the number of people it can serve and the geographic reach of its direct service program, its role in advocacy to end homelessness, and its efforts to change the public’s perception of homelessness. HPRP is in a strong position to pursue these goals, which led the leadership of the organization to launch this strategic planning initiative.
