Outcomes we helped create!

Strategic/Operational Planning

  • A strategic plan for Vegreville Individuals with Disabilities Society and a new revenue source – assisting seniors with lawn and snow maintenance vs. working at the bottle depot.  Other outcomes was a work environment where staff thrived, a new garden out front and new location where individuals were part of the community – coming in the front door vs having to go in the back door through the alley.
