In the Spring of 2017 we completed a year-long comprehensive strategic review. We asked for the advice of our 33 affiliated centers’ Executive Directors and board members on how to best serve their centers, and are excited to reveal what we believe will elevate our affiliates to new heights in best practices, brand awareness, client experience, and more!
From the review, we discovered we needed to expand our structure in order to better support each of our affiliates according to their distinct set of needs. There are three main types of affiliates- the medical clinics, the Metro centers, and the Outstate centers- and each one has unique strengths and challenges. We are excited to unveil new and tailored support to each type of affiliate, their staff, and boards.
Out of the review, we learned that our centers wanted our organization to clearly define who we are and what we do from what our affiliates do. Going forward, we have rebranded TLC Options for Women to Elevate Life! Our strategic plan has 6 main milestones:
- Name change and branding
- Adding affiliate support staff
- Centers of Excellence
- Advisory Councils
- Innovation Partners
- Expansion of our model to other states
At Elevate Life we are excited to be moving into the future by maintaining the most highly valued services and adding new services that align with the needs of our affiliates.
