Charting impact

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

In developing this strategic plan the Board of Directors gathered information from various stakeholders, reviewed past performance, and researched both our opportunities and threats. When looking at the Quad Cities community it is hard to not recognize how the river divides the region and that the bridges connect us. At the time of plan development a landmark bridge along I-74 is being built to better connect the Quad Cities Region and it was determined that a bridge is the perfect symbol of this strategic plan. Like a bridge our plan will connect the region and move us from our current operations to our future vision of services. In order to achieve our future vision strategic objectives and goals were developed around our programs, people, resources, excellence and advocacy. By achieving these strategic initiatives we can build a bridge that connects the community and will offer strong supports for the many years to come.
