Many nonprofit organizations use strategic planning theory and methodology to improve and maintain their organizational health. A strategic plan is creating a long-term plan that applies an organized framework of operational plans through the characteristic lens of the organization. Externally, strategic planning provides continuity for effective and appropriate delivery of services, and when the process is successfully administered and managed, will create a cohesive internal environment.

A strategic plan was developed for Peace House to help the nonprofit organization become more stable as it shifts from fiscal organizational planning to a formulated plan that considers impending social justice trends, as well as internal organizational health. This strategic plan replaces the previous informal planning and provides clear mission and vision, programming structure, leadership development campaigns, and financial planning. This paper describes the theoretical foundations of strategic planning, organizational context, goals, objectives, action plans, monitoring and evaluating and other details about the strategic plan.
