Strategic Priorities of the Southern Networ

Strategic Planning Priorities

  • Build on our cultural foundation, not a mainstream child welfare foundation.
  • Adopt, support and promote a customary care model, focused on programming that prevents the break-up of our families.
  • Improve our communication with clients, partners and political leadership in order to build trust and collaboration, and to promote our brand.
  • Forge new and more effective funding arrangements.

We are taking care of our own.
