Our Initatives 

"At any given time, Hope Haven is in the midst of strategic initiatives. Each year, we select a "thematic goal" that is our top annual priority. Currently, that goal is "become a better workplace" and we have teams working on the focus areas of that goal. We also operate under a Strategic Plan that refreshes every three years. Our current plan started in July, 2019 with six areas of focus, as you can see below. I'm proud of the work we've accomplished, and we continue to make progress in crucial matters affecting our world, like: cultural humility, use of data and the impact of our Christian faith in the public square." - Hope Haven CEO, Matt Buley
