Strategic planning

HOPE International follows multi-year strategic plans. Our strategic plans include three core objectives intentionally ordered to build upon one another: Christ-centered, quality, and growth. In 2016 we added the element of actively listening to stakeholders as we explore HOPE’s role in catalyzing transformation across the four domains: spiritual, social, personal, and material.

We share our previous and current strategic plans here for accountability and gratitude to God for progress made towards achieving these objectives.
