STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS

In 2022, Sabathani began conducting a two-year community needs assessment. We heard directly from community members through multiple listening sessions and surveys. Through this process, we identified our community’s current strengths, needs, and goals. These findings have shaped our mission, vision, and values.

Four impact areas—health, wealth, resilience, and longevity—emerged from the community needs assessment. The 2024-2027 Sabathani Strategic Plan details our current efforts in these impact areas and our future plans to support our community through these areas.
