Want to hear about what we’re learning from our strategic planning process? Register now for our upcoming webinars!

As many of you know, the Horizon Foundation has been hard at work over the past year engaging with the community in new ways to develop our new strategic plan. We’ve conducted one-on-one interviews with our grantees and partners, door knocking, polling, focus groups, website surveys, and in-person polling during our community summit. In addition to hearing from our grantees and partners about their priorities, we have also gathered important information about the lived experiences of and significant barriers faced by our residents of color, especially those who live in lower-income households. All of this data will help inform our strategic plan moving forward (note, we are still working on it).

Many in the community have asked for access to this data to help inform their organization’s plans. We think that’s a great idea!

We’d like to invite you to two webinars next week hosted by several of our partners that have been with us along the way to help gather this information from the community. Join us to hear more about what we’ve learned and ask questions of those who collected the information. We will record these webinars so please register to get access if you cannot join us virtually. All reports will be available to review on the Howard Community Health Foundation website after the webinars conclude.
