Strategic Plan: FY22-FY25

In FY22, Hildebrand staff and Board worked together to create a Strategic Plan that will shape the work of the organization for the next three years and beyond. The Strategic Plan will transform Hildebrand and its impact on families experiencing homelessness, while disrupting the systems that lead to it. The plan identifies four Strategic Directions, each with its own bold set of goals that will guide the growth and development of the organization into the future.
