The community needs assessment was carried out by Dr. Jo Ann Gray-Murray and the Community Needs Assessment team in spring of 2016 to assist RKCAA in its mission to enable low-income individuals, in rural and urban areas, to attain the skills, knowledge and motivation to achieve self-sufficiency. The assessment examine data from a variety of sources—surveys and focus groups with low-income residents, focus groups with service providers, and key informant interviews—to develop an understanding of the key issues affecting individuals living in poverty in both counties.
