Our Strategic Plan 2019-2020
Our Work Ahead:
Mission: Teen Feed works with the community to offer support to meet basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with homeless youth as they meet their future off the streets.
This is our work. Teen Feed is a lean, responsive and resilient organization. In 2019, Teen Feed’s Board of Directors and staff renewed a 2 Year Flexible Plan to guide our programs, marketing and investments as we offer, build, and ally with homeless youth. We will continue to focus on: meals, relationships, stability and deep networks with strong partners who complement what we do well. Our plan demonstrates Teen Feed’s commitment to volunteerism, collaborating with the community, businesses, faith organizations and service organizations to help meet the mounting needs of our youth homeless population. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Teen Feed has not missed one nightly meal service or one outreach opportunity. We shifted, and powered forward. We continue to interact as essential workers during this unprecedented time without a break. We morph, pull together, and drive toward our mission.
Our Strategic Vision
Teen Feed gets it right. The Teen Feed Board and Staff supports a comprehensive strategy to guide the organization in the execution of programs, marketing, investments and collaborations with the city, organizations and corporate partners. The strategic plan demonstrates our commitment to volunteerism, collaboration with the community, businesses, faith organizations and service providers to met the needs of homeless youth.

Our Core Values:
1. All people are entitles to the basic human rights of health, safety, and self-determination.
2. We work to foster a sense of mutual respect with our clients. We recognize the autonomy of the youth we serve and respect their values and judgment.
3. The young people we serve have the right to impart meaningful input to the Teen Feed staff and our programs.
4. We build and nurture relationships through consistency, trust, and mutual accountability.
5. Homelessness is not a reflection of the merits of one’s character. We are all people of equal value: any of us could be in the same situation as the people we serve.
