Special Thanks to KPMG LLP

Renascent acknowledges the outstanding work of KPMG LLP in leading the development of our 2021-2026 Strategic Plan: Collaboration, Innovation, and Investment. Their services were provided on a pro bono basis to Renascent, as part of KPMG LLP’s commitment to supporting mental health and people living with addiction. Their support and guidance has been integral to the creation of this visionary five-year plan.

Collaboration, Innovation, and Investment

We are proud to introduce Renascent’s 2021-2026 Strategic Plan: Collaboration, Innovation, and Investment – a roadmap that builds upon our organization’s strengths and legacy to guide us steadfastly over the next five years. Our new strategic plan has been shaped by the input and experiences of Renascent’s many clients, staff, donors, alumni, partners, and stakeholders within many marginalized populations to address health equity gaps within our current system. The new plan reflects our collective passion and commitment to creating healthier communities today, and into the future.

As a leader in the field of addiction and mental health treatment, we remain driven by our Mission, Vision and Values – which have been refreshed as a part of the strategic planning process. As we developed this new Mission, Vision, and Values along with our Strategic Plan, we carefully considered the changing needs of our communities and the many people and organizations who enable our high-quality addiction treatment.

Renascent has played a unique and pivotal role in supporting the recovery of tens of thousands of people for over 50 years. Looking ahead, our focus will be on advancing four strategic pillars: Program Development and Scope, Funding, Partnerships & Business Development, Diversity and Inclusion, and People and Infrastructure. Through these pillars, we commit to working in collaboration with others to lead change across our sector; driving innovation to support the best client outcomes; and ensuring sustained investment into our people, programs and services.

This is an aspirational and visionary plan – that will prepare us to meet the opportunities and challenges ahead. Thank you to its many contributors. We look forward to tracking our progress and celebrating our achievements over the next five years. We will remain responsive to our constantly changing environment and steadfast in our commitment to supporting clients on the road to recovery.
