Healthy families help to build strong and sustainable communities. Thus, our focus of services is on strengthening families, particularly economically vulnerable families or those impacted by violence or trauma.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Strategic Plan will establish metrics to correlate with priorities. Additionally, each board and management committee will identifying stakeholders, identify how each standing agenda item addresses the stakeholder's needs and recommend indicators of success.

2024
- Strengthen Financial Sustainability
- Targeted Revenue
- Productivity
- Investment in Human Capital

Outlined below is a summary of our existing Strategic Plan, including the Strategic Initiatives that we will pursue, as well as our Strategic Enablers, which will be critical to the success of the Plan. Our Key Strategic Goals for 2024, combined with the Balanced Scorecard and Key Performance Metrics, will provide empirical data that will measure how well we are performing relative to the most important components of our Strategic Plan.

We will provide an overview of all of our services highlighted in the campaign, including:
Children and Families: Our focus is on strengthening families, particularly economically vulnerable families or those impacted by violence or trauma. We are currently operating above capacity, and we need help. Each year Children and Family Services sees more than 12,000 people, offering trauma and abuse counseling services to those experiencing domestic violence and crisis intervention for adolescents and their parents.

Community Services: New Jersey's cost of living is the third highest in the nation, so it is only to be expected that we assist more people through these services than any other within the organization. The percentage of working families seeking food assistance has increased dramatically. Our programs support immediate basic needs while providing opportunities for people to develop financial literacy, marketable job skills and secure permanent, affordable housing.

Immigration services: Continues to grow in response to the needs in our Diocese. Our Department of Justice (DOJ) - accredited case managers provide civil legal assistance. We also provide citizenship and naturalization classes, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, job training, food, and clothing. We currently have several parish relationships already in place and are providing services.

Other areas of consideration are as follows:
Identifying New Partnerships: Our partnership network is strong and continues to grow. Our partnerships include hospital and human service organizations with which we collaborate, federal and state government
