Brownsville Wellness Coalition Board of Directors and Executive Director developed this Strategic Plan with assistance from Lee + Associates, a nonprofit consulting firm in San Antonio, Texas. The work and deliberation of the Board and Executive leadership produced

the strategic goals and objectives for the next three years along with an operations plan to ensure accountability for implementation. This strategic plan is an important step toward continued success and provides Brownsville Wellness Coalition with a clear roadmap for strengthening organizational capacity and sustainability.

This plan was developed with involvement and guidance from the full Board of Directors and the organization’s Executive Director. The Board met twice, first to reflect on the vision of the organization and later to determine the strategic goals to govern the strategic plan.

Brownsville Wellness Coalition sought the voice and opinion of its stakeholders, including the Board, volunteers, staff, funders, individual donors, community partners, and City officials in this planning effort. Based on input from its stakeholders, this plan focuses Brownsville Wellness Coalition’s vision and direction towards creating greater impact in the Brownsville community.

Lee + Associates also conducted an organizational scan to review BWC’s structure, systems, programs, processes, people, finances and reputation to explore how these elements currently and potentially could affect BWC’s operations. The survey results and assessment

report were presented at the second Strategic Planning Committee session. The data gathered helped the Board assess both the challenges and opportunities BWC is likely to face over the next three years and set the context for the choices reflected in this strategic plan.

This plan will give BWC invaluable direction toward progress over the next three years. Based on input from key stakeholders, this plan focuses BWC’s vision and direction. BWC will move into a new facility, create a strategic funding plan, build internal capacity and engagement, increase community awareness, and strengthen mission-centered programs.
