Habitat staff and board of directors have worked together to formalize a comprehensive three year plan to meet these goals. The Leadership Team of the organization is tasked with meeting the goals and staying on course. Each Board Committee that oversees the day-to-day operations is also tasked with ensuring the accomplishment of the goals as set forward by the strategic plan.

This new plan is in process now so most of the work has started but has not been accomplished as yet. We have established a core group of affordable housing nonprofits and have committed to a building for the Housing Hub. We have begun pre and post purchase classes for Habitat and non-Habitat homeowners. We have begun meeting with neighborhood leaders to recruit Block Captains for Revitalization project. We have met with UNCG Center for Housing and Community Studies to analyze recent data on Greensboro neighborhoods. We are in process to determine scope and size of budget to begin the fundraising for these projects.
