Strategic Plan - Vision 2023: An Amazing Future


We're on a new mission: To Heal. To Teach. To Empower. To Amaze.            

The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh has been growing and changing since 1902. More than a century later, we remain rooted in phenomenal care and innovative practices that our legacy is built on. Our progress is evident, however, in how we continually adapt to the changes in the world around us to best address the needs of individuals with disabilities and their loved ones. To reflect our evolution, we have new mission and vision statements, as well as a new strategic plan, and we are delighted to share them with you.

VISION 2023: An Amazing Future

The Children's Institute of Pittsburgh is a century-old success story with new chapters written every day. Our new strategic plan, VISION 2023: An Amazing Future, provides direction for writing those new chapters by addressing the current needs of our community. With strong leadership from the Board and administration, as well as critical input from staff and key stakeholders, we have plotted a clear direction forward through the following three goals:

We will operate a portfolio of services within a financially sustainable model that achieves breakeven from operations, by the end of fiscal year 2023.

  • We are stewards and protectors of our mission and recognize that the effective execution of our mission requires financial viability. We must invest in and develop an array of services that are mission-focused and sustainable.

We will aggressively pursue partnerships that enhance our capacity to provide, develop, and connect to a sustainable, holistic array of exceptional services that support individuals with disabilities across their lifespan. 

  • We must pursue partnerships that enhance our capabilities. We will cultivate partnerships with like-minded organizations to enhance our development and provision of integrated, holistic care to support individuals with disabilities at every stage of life.

We will attract and retain the best talent to ensure our quality of services and reputation continue to differentiate us from our peers.

  • When families speak about the impact of The Children's Institute on their lives, they don't talk about the buildings, locations, or equipment. They talk about the phenomenal care provided by our team of professionals. The best people will result in the best care for our amazing kids.

Our Vision for an Amazing Future

We seek to be the lifelong partner to individuals with a disability and their families. We will position our services to reach more individuals with an array of exceptional services that cross the lifespan, advance the models of care, and establish our organizational as an influential voice regarding the subjects of disability, education, family support services and behavioral health.
