WINNSBORO – The Fairfield Forward Coalition will unveil its five-year strategic plan on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2022 from 4 – 6 p.m. at St. Luke Baptist Church located at 183 St. Luke Church Road in Winnsboro.

Kulik Strategic Advisers (KSA) assisted Fairfield Forward in developing a plan to set the direction for the coalition for 2023-27 and attract new funding. The process included stakeholder interviews, benchmarking, and a two-day retreat in October.

Some of Fairfield Forward’s programs include the Fathers Matter initiative, CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), Community Gardens at Prisma Health and 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.
