Advanced Community Assessments
November 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Your community—who lives there and what they need—is always changing. That’s why NCA accreditation standards encourage CACs to conduct a community assessment every 3 years. But what does a community assessment look like? And how do you meet this important standard with limited capacity? This workshop will walk through the basic steps of conducting a local community assessment including pulling demographic data from public sources, analyzing public data against CAC data and understanding service area gaps. We’ll also discuss other simple ways to understand local community needs and strategies for community outreach. Participants will leave the workshop with a concrete understanding of community assessment and a basic plan for implementing a community assessment in their area.
- Learn about the purpose and importance of community assessment
- Learn basic steps in conducting a community assessment
