Strategic Plan

Reena’s 2015 – 2020 Strategic Plan is based on being ready to do more. Not just any ready, but Reena Ready. Reena Ready is the standard we hold ourselves to, that we will support individuals with the best possible tools we can develop and place the value of the whole person above all else including their spiritual, cultural and/or religious needs. Reena Ready to Work will support employment training, coaching and placement. It will involve learning and training for Reena employees, volunteers and family networks. Reena Ready to Live will support a variety of housing opportunities and independent life skills. Reena Ready to Play will support community based access including volunteering, social programs and all forms of communal engagement.
