Three-Year Strategic Plan 2023-2025
To help focus the Board of Directors, staff, and community partners in advancing the mission, the Tri-County Board develops long-range strategic plans. Input for the plan comes from community surveys, coalitions, clients, families, provider agencies and other partners. The Strategic Plan is a working, living document, subject to change as needs, funding and opportunities arise. In 2022 the Board contracted with OnPointe Strategic Insights and Illuminology to research, catalog and analyze potential inequities in the Tri-County Board's mental health and addictions service area. The Report to the Board and the associated research findings inform the Board's strategic planning activities. The Board's Three-Year Strategic Plan 2023-2025 below was adopted September 20 2023.
