"This framework is many things to our team:
it is, of course, a roadmap for our long-term work, reminding us to check our choices against our values and to align our work with our hoped-for outcomes. [It is] a learning tool, instructive of what capacities we need to build and strengthen, so that we can stay on purpose with our long-term vision. It is also an organizing tool – we’ve already seen that play out in the development process as we brought a diverse group of stakeholders to the table to co-create our framework."
Maricela Rios, Chief Executive Officer
"The Theory of Change and the strategic framework that evolved from the process helped establish clarity on our organizational “why”, Human Options' collective commitment on how we show up in pursuit of that why, and the impact we are committed to on behalf of survivors of relationship violence."
