During the final months of 2021, the entire Project Success staff and the entire board met to share ideas about the future vision of the organization, creating a plan that outlines our direction, goals and priorities over the next three and a half years. Led by an incredible team of facilitators from HueLife, a small group of board and staff combined these ideas into our new 2022-2025 Strategic Plan.
