Where We’re Going

Eckerd Kids’ 2020 Vision represents the organization’s overarching strategic objective — to provide second chances to 23,500 children annually by 2020 and to be recognized nationally as a leader in the nonprofit youth services arena.

Fundamentally, we expect growth to occur by:

  • Providing national thought leadership with respect to child welfare and juvenile justice system of care reform;
  • Leveraging Eckerd Kids’ long-standing presence and reputation in current operating states to partner with both existing and untapped youth services customers to create and implement innovative community-based solutions; and
  • Merging missions with smaller community-centric providers, particularly those with a child welfare emphasis, located in Eckerd Kids’ current states of operation as well as in target new states.
