Understanding the community and issues related to poverty is a critical part of designing programs and supports that will meet our mission: Helping people move from poverty toward prosperity.
Your Community Action agency follows a three-year Community Assessment cycle.
- IN YEAR ONE we gather and analyze important statistics and data points
- IN YEAR TWO we review current academic and expert analysis about poverty-related issues
- IN YEAR THREE we gather input from low-income people and community stakeholders
Community Action uses our assessments to help agency leadership make important investment decisions, establish long-range plans, and to help educate our community residents about the realities of poverty in our midst.
