Putting the Puzzle Together Capacity Assessment Planning Implementation & Evaluation
The Agenda For Tonight • Create a vision statement • Create a mission statement • Develop a strategic plan based on your logic model utilizing CADCA’s Seven Strategies for Change • Evaluation
Vision Statement “The dream—how your community will be when all the outcomes are met.” Your long term fantasy for a perfect community
Vision Statement Example: The vision for Utopia Alliance is a healthy, vibrant community, free of misuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
Mission Statement • What the Alliance’s role is in making the vision a reality. Example: The Mission of the Utopia Alliance is to transform the Township of Utopia into a community that nurtures youth and families by engaging residents in the process of ongoing community problem solving to reduce substance abuse.
Difference between Vision & Mission While the Vision is a dream, the Mission is more concrete and action oriented.
