Time to Expect More: Strategic Plan

All foster youth have the support and resources to successfully transition to adulthood. Our strategic plan is anchored by three interconnected objectives:

  • Expand What works
    Influence the foster care field and other stakeholders to adopt policies and practices that will help transition-age foster youth succeed.
  • Make the Case
    Continue to build evidence that My First Place achieves measurable outcomes for youth.
  • Sustain Success
    Build on the new funding stream we helped secure by raising funds to meet current program goals and enable growth.
