Strategic Plan for Treatment in Central Washington

Improving Treatment

Growing and Improving

Here at Merit Resource Services, we are always trying to improve how we do things. In our efforts to grow and to improve, we have developed a strategic plan with input from management, the board of directors, persons served, community partners, stakeholders and other interested parties. In this effort, we have scheduled a strategic planning retreat for our management team and board of directors to review our current strategies and update our plan. We are interested in feedback on how we could improve services.
