The Hartford Childhood Wellness Alliance is a group of community organizations, working across multiple sectors, to improve the overall health and well-being of children in the City of Hartford by promoting healthy eating and active living.  HRiA facilitated a half-day rapid planning retreat with Alliance members to refine key elements of their strategic framework, including a review of past successes and challenges; an update of the vision and mission statements; and a redefinition of goals and success metrics based on a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) survey administered prior to the retreat.
