Community Needs Assessment
Rocky Mountain Development Council, Inc. (Rocky) conducted the Comprehensive Community Needs Assessment (CCNA) to provide the organization with information about the population it targets for service. The study was designed to compare Rocky’s services to the needs of the community that were identified by surveys, community forums, key-informant interviews, and focus groups. Added to information from these groups was quantitative data from a number of local, statewide, and national resources.
Rocky encourages and welcomes community partners and other nonprofits to utilize the CCNA when evaluating their own programs and services.
Rocky’s CCNA committee would like to thank the Rocky Board of Directors and staff members who helped develop the key findings. Rocky’s partners also completed surveys, attended forums, and brought good information to help us finish this document.
Thank you to Kara Nelson, Community Outreach Coordinator, who participated on the committee and then created this beautiful document.
Rocky would also like to thank all individuals who completed the Needs Survey, attended a Community Forum, or participated in a direct interview. By participating, you helped Rocky understand the emerging and ongoing needs within our communities. The responses gathered provided Rocky with information about which partners and other organizations are working on issues and where gaps exist in our community services.
