Strategic Planning

Fresno Housing’s Strategic Plan – “Mapping the Way toward a Strategic Future for the New Fresno Housing” – was developed through a comprehensive, yearlong process that included an in-depth assessment of the organization’s history, accomplishments, and challenges gleaned from research, document review, and interviews with more than 60 stakeholders and community leaders and more than a dozen interviews with the leadership of other housing authorities across the country. This information provided the groundwork to develop a new vision, mission, set of goals, and an action plan. The process was guided by the agency’s Executive/Senior Management Team and the Board of Commissioners, and is enhanced by Special Initiatives.

The Fresno Housing Strategic Plan, supports its continued mission of creating vibrant communities throughout Fresno County through four broad strategic areas:

  • Place:  Quality Housing
  • People:  Engaged Residents
  • Public:  Broad Support
  • Partnership:  Effective Collaboration
