The Board of Directors and staff met for a strategic planning retreat on November 5th, 2016. It was a very fruitful time together discussing and planning for the future. The Hospitality Center started as a response to the needs of the community in 1992. Communities change, and so do the needs. While we continue to meet the basic necessities of food and daytime shelter, we have been very intentional in understanding the current difficulties our constituents encounter. We have spent a considerable amount of time exploring ways in which we can meet some of these challenges within our mission. Our new programs are directly related to addressing these issues. The strategic planning retreat was facilitated by Megan McVety, Principal and Co-founder of Capacity For Change, LLC.
