MESH’s activities are guided by our strategic plan.  In an effort to recognize emerging trends, evaluate our role in the community, and to focus staff activities; the MESH Board of Directors and staff completed a strategic plan in early 2016, and have begun implementing a specific workplan to carry our goals and strategies forward.  Based on MESH’s 2016-2019  strategic plan, all staff activities will focus on three program areas: providing strategic support and facilitation, providing vital technical assistance & further equipping housing and shelter staff with knowledge, networking and skills.

The strategic plan also identified four focus areas we are committed to concentrating agency time to over the next three to five years, they are: Advancing racial equity, expanding to Greater Minnesota, enhancing outreach and communication & increasing financial sustainability.
