What is a Needs Assessment?

A Needs Assessment is a vital tool for understanding the unique features of your community. It provides a clear picture of the challenges faced by your community and suggests resources available to your organization to help address those challenges.  A Needs Assessment is a framework for use in future planning, enabling your organization to respond appropriately to help strengthen your community.
