Strategic Plan

A strategic planning process is underway. The process began in January 2014 with an effort to seek the input of servers and diners; haircutters and haircutees; sorters, folders and shoppers; those who attend worship and those who come just for lunch; community partners; gardeners; and every other section of the Haywood Street community.  A summary report from that effort can be found here: HSC Information Gathering Report FINAL 2014 06-06

The leadership of Haywood St. is using the information gathered from the community to form strategic priorities and a plan to guide the organization for the next three-five years.  Stay tuned for more!
