In January 2020, we commenced with the process of creating a Strategic Plan that reflected how we envision the future of child welfare services and the Family Violence Counselling Program in Oxford County. We wanted a plan that reflected our commitment to listen and learn so we engaged with more than 150 internal and external stakeholders to hear their ideas and perspectives

Our new Strategic Plan, approved by the Board of Directors in October 2020, commits to five priorities and goals that will shape our next three years. The development of this new Strategic Plan reinforces the organizational belief in both the importance of the work that we do and the critical role of partnerships and collaborations in our community. During our planning, we renewed our organizational logo to create an image that better reflects our values and intuitively speaks to our hope for the future of children, youth and families in Oxford.

Thank you to all who contributed their voice and perspective. We look forward to working together to implement our plan and achieve our vision.
