Here, we know that children have many influences in their lives and that every adult who comes into contact with a child has a unique perspective on what that child needs to thrive. To help us understand how to best serve these kids, every three years we get to work identifying the needs and priorities of our surrounding communities. This includes collecting public health and demographic data, interviewing public health experts and healthcare providers, conducting focus groups with caregivers, and gathering input from hundreds of parents and caregivers through online surveys.
Our work culminates in a report called a Community Health Needs Assessment, or CHNA. Thanks to these assessments, we have better insight into the challenges facing children in our area.
Community Health Needs Assessments
We're pleased to share our latest assessments, where we identify child health priorities and a framework in which to guide our work.
