180 Degrees, Inc. was incorporated in 1971 and, in 1973, opened the doors to a half-way house in Minneapolis for men re-entering the community after incarceration. Through responsive program development and acquisitions, 180 Degrees has evolved to include a wide range of social services and support for youth, adults, and families who have experienced adversity.
In the fall of 2015, 180 Degrees embarked on a strategic planning process, charting a path toward a Bold Future. Led by CEO Dan Pfarr and the Board of Directors, along with staff, clients, and community stakeholders, teams identified strategic goals and tactics and developed plans to implement those. With program acquisitions in 2011 and significant leadership transitions, the early planning process focused on internal culture, values, and operations. As 180 Degrees nears the end of this five-year plan, significant progress has been made aligning operations across nine different programs, including development and phased roll-out of a new database to capture client demographics and measure program performance.
