Community Needs Assessment
A community needs assessment includes exiting and new data to show the needs of the community. Existing data resources are the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) and the Comprehensive Juvenile Services Plan for the County. Nebraska Children gathers data for counties on key indicators for child well–being that shows county data in relation to state level data. In addition, Nebraska Children supports a local evaluator to gather all relevant needs data into one comprehensive report (see example).
