Creating Your Program’s Full Community Assessment

Your Community Assessment is one of the foundational elements of your program. It is used to make important decisions in your program regarding program design and service delivery. It is a critical document when writing your Refunding application, when writing a Recompetition grant application and when making programmatic decisions about selection criteria, enrollment slots, and types of services needed by children and families. It’s an essential document used for data-driven decision making and must include all needed data.

We create comprehensive Community Assessments for Head Start & Early Head Start programs as well as Community Action Agencies. They include all of the required items in the new Head Start Program Performance Standards (and, for Community Action Agencies, the regulations of your CAP programs). As all of our services are custom designed, we will include any additional data that you request.    

Our Community Assessments include:

  • Aggregating and analyzing a multitude of data sources;
  • Comparing current data with past years’ data;
  • Colorful graphs and charts illustrating the data;
  • Key findings for each piece of data;
  • Surveys of your Staff, Policy Council, Board and Community Partners.

The Community Assessment will include an analysis of the data as well as an Executive Summary & much more – in a user-friendly format. Call or email us for a free sample!
