Our 2016-2018 Strategic plan was developed in a highly inclusive process. Our Board, staff, guests, and other major stakeholders all had a voice in developing the plan. We believed that in order to make the most impact, we needed to hear from all our stakeholders and how they see our role and impact in DC.
The 2019-2022 Strategic plan (MK2022) was built off that process and input. The final document is quite extensive, but it boils down to three impact areas:
- Impacting Individuals: Helping individuals obtain housing as well as the support, resources, and health connections to thrive in housing.
- Impacting Systems: Ending homelessness city-wide through increasing housing resources, preventing homelessness, improving systems through policy change, and addressing root causes of homelessness.
- Impacting Culture: Ending homelessness requires a shift in our collective culture. We will change the way we think about, talk about, and respond to homelessness, and mobilize others to do the same.
We hope that you are as excited about this road map to ending veteran and chronic homelessness in DC as we are. We also hope that you are better able to see how the wide range of services that MK provides (from meals to housing) work together to help us achieve our mission. You can read the full plan here:
