We are pleased to share Cinnaire’s 2019-2023 Strategic Plan with you. The plan is a culmination of almost a year’s research, reflection and goal setting and it was built with the input of our staff, our Board of Directors and a range of partners. As we drafted the plan, we challenged ourselves to have ambitious conversations about how Cinnaire could grow and make the most meaningful impact in the communities we serve. The result of those conversations is a document that we’re proud to share with you today. It is both ambitious and practical. It is focused on our future, yet respectful of our past. Most importantly, it leans hard into the Why of Cinnaire – We have an unwavering belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities – while thoughtfully building on our core strengths and expanding into new areas.
As we introduce this plan, we want to give a nod of gratitude to our strategic advisor, Adina Abramowitz from Consulting For Change, and her extended team which included Mark Pinsky of Five/Four Advisors and Barry Zigas of Zigas & Associates. This industry A-team has been advising Cinnaire for several years, and during the strategic planning process they helped us dig deep and with an eye on the future, build out from our core. They facilitated Board/staff discussions, gathered topics for research, designed questions for focus groups and conducted many interviews. Their input resonates throughout the plan.
Our new strategic plan is bold, expansive, and builds on our strong history in affordable housing to impact our entire footprint. Our commitments include:
Of course there is more – and we hope you will take a few minutes to look over Cinnaire’s 2019 – 2023 Strategic Plan and let us know what you think.
This new plan goes to our roots and uses our capital and expertise to create catalytic change, for people and for entire communities. We look forward to sharing the journey and our progress with you. Thank you for being an important partner.
Mark McDaniel, Chief Executive Officer
