Germantown United CDC released the organization’s five-year strategic plan in September 2018. This new plan will serve as a roadmap and tool for assessing progress, and will help prioritize and advance the organization’s work in Northwest Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood now through the year 2023.
The year-long planning process helped Germantown United CDC’s leadership to step back and examine where we are, where we want to go, and how to get there.
We have sharpened the organization’s mission, assessed program activities, and looked for opportunities to enhance our community and economic development work.
The planning process was led by V. Lamar Wilson Associates, a private consulting firm specializing in community development contracted to examine GUCDC’s program operations, and solicit different points of view and critiques of the organization—internal and external. This comprehensive process was made possible by the generous support of The Philadelphia Foundation.
