St.Amant developed this strategic plan to set the organization’s direction for the next five years (2019–2023).
The plan articulates a mission, vision, goals and strategic priorities and objectives, to guide the leadership team in developing realistic, achievable and measurable annual plans. It demonstrates a continuing uniqueness of the organization and a commitment to human rights as demonstrated through the changes to 440 River Road over the past 5 years where people who were chronically underserved and inappropriately restrained are living better lives; some in the community, some in dignified living environments with more choice and a focus on outcomes.
The plan continues to build on what we have collectively accomplished to-date, including the goals and objectives set in our previous 5-year strategic plan as well as work that was not articulated in the last plan, but that became a priority over the past five years, such as supporting Abilities Manitoba’s goals of implementing a community quality assurance framework, staff training program and improved wages for direct support professionals. The plan reflects St.Amant’s values of collaboration, hospitality, excellence and respect — values that guide actions and relationships with the people supported, families and co-workers.
Achievement towards the goals and objectives set in the plan will be monitored, with progress reviewed regularly against annual performance indicators.
