Community Needs Assessment:

The Union County Department of Human Services is conducting a Community Needs Assessment to identify resident needs, access to services, and gaps.  A community needs assessment identifies the strengths and resources available in the community to meet the needs of children, youth, and families. The evaluation focuses on the capabilities of the city, including its citizens, agencies, and organizations. I am asking that you share this email with your division directors and line employees.
