Fairfield Forward developing five-year strategic plan

WINNSBORO – Fairfield Forward has begun a three-month process to develop a strategic plan to set the direction for the consortium for 2023-2027 and attract new funding.

The process will include stakeholder interviews, benchmarking, and a two-day retreat in October.

Fairfield Forward has engaged the consulting firm of Kulik Strategic Advisers (KSA) to assist in this process.

Fairfield Forward is an alliance of community members, leaders, and agencies that utilize collaboration and partnership to foster a culture of wellness within the community.

Together, identifying needs and facilitating collaborative solutions, Fairfield Forward strengthens community ownership at all levels of their common agendas, positively changing the quality of life for current and future generations.

The Coalition was formed in 1996 after several years of informal collaboration and received 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 2019. Some of its programs include the Fathers Matter initiative, CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), Community Gardens in Schools, the Farmer’s Market, Food Share, Water Bottle Filling Stations in schools, Alston Trailhead, Kids in Parks, the Walkabouts program in schools and equipment for the Fairfield County Parks and Recreation Fitness Center.

Fairfield Forward received grant support from the Duke Endowment for Healthy People Healthy Carolinas and is now looking to broaden its support base to allow for additional programs to make Fairfield County a healthier place to live, work, play and pray.
