As part of their work to integrate and streamline practices as a newly formed agency, DCYF developed a draft Strategic Plan that provides the framework for their priorities.
Over the next five years, DCYF will focus on five Strategic Priorities – three relate to goals for children, youth and families, and two relate to building necessary agency capacity to accomplish the first three. These strategic priorities are grounded in the agency’s mission, vision, values and legislative purpose. The process to gather feedback on the draft will continue over the next few months with plenty of opportunity for engagement with staff and stakeholders.
