Community Needs Assessment 2010

The United Way of Mid & South Jefferson County is dedicated to improving the quality of the life in the Mid & South Jefferson County area by funding and implementing local programs that address community needs.

In order to identify the most critical needs in the Mid & South Jefferson County area, the United Way MSJC conducted a Community Needs Assessment.

United Way MSJC will use the information from the Community Needs Assessment (CNA) as a tool in determining funding for existing programs.

The CNA results will also help determine funding for new programs and initiatives that address unmet or under-met needs.

2010 CNA Study was conducted by Dakota Doman, Robert M. Tinstman Fellowship Award Winner.
