Mission, Vision, Strategic Plan, Oh My!

Updated: Apr 10

We have exciting news to share!  Eastside Friends of Seniors (EFS) has updated our mission and vision statements and created our first-ever strategic plan to guide our work into the future. The new statements and strategic plan were crafted at the recent board of director’s annual retreat, following months of data gathering, analysis and discussions.

We could not exist if it weren’t for community volunteers and support, and it felt crucial to state this at the very beginning our updated mission.  The mission now more accurately reflects what we do. In the updated vision statement, you'll see that the focus shifts from an individual level to one centered around the community.


EFS Mission Statement

Former  We provide volunteer services to seniors facing the challenges of aging

New       We partner with the community to assist older adults to live independently and stay

socially connected


EFS Vision Statement

Former   Independent, dignified and engaged older adults

New        A community that values and supports older adults

In our strategic plan, we have identified five strategic directions to guide us in the next few years.  These are:

-Be a strong advocate for older adults

-Expand resource support

-Reduce social isolation

-Be experts on supporting seniors living independently

-Connect and grow with our community

We are excited to share the implementation of this new strategic plan in future publications.
