seventeen years ago, when I became President and CEO of
Resurrection House, the Board of Directors and I went through a
strategic planning process. We did this again about five years
ago to ensure our mission and goals were on track. They are.
Management expert Peter Druckerís books were iconic and I
remember reading about the Japanese one hundred year plans and
thinking that may be too ambitious for us; but, certainly we
could consider a twenty year plan. To date, we have achieved
four of five goals made those many years ago and, by the time I
retire, we expect to be well on our way to accomplishing goal
I mention this because our work with participant
families follows the same path. We help them move from fear to
planning a future. The key, both for the families and
Resurrection House, is Druckerís advice that any plan is
meaningless unless it is grounded in action today. We work with
families to consider each step toward their goals and, then,
hold them accountable for working each day to accomplish these
steps. Itís a simple plan and it works.
This is a
team effort that embraces the entire community of Tampa Bay.
Without our supporters, partnerships, and volunteers, we could
not reach any of our goals. I wish to thank you and acknowledge
your confidence in our mission and the myriad ways our success
is because of you...
God bless you!
President, Resurrection House
