Strategic Planning

Catherine's House

The Lee Institute was very helpful in guiding Catherine's House through a well-designed strategic planning process. Following the completion of focused research and interactive meetings, we emerged from the process with greater clarity regarding our mission and goals for the future. The process also assisted our Board and staff in affirming the strengths of the organization and how we might apply our unique resources to assist even more women and children who face homelessness.
