Project Description

University of Illinois Extension has long collaborated with United Way in various aspects of community building beginning with the formation of the Alliance for Building Community with partners the Adams County Health Department and the Blessing Health System. Like the world around us, our community building work is constantly evolving. The United Way approach to community building is designed to foster partnerships, open lines of communication and effectively direct resources to address challenging issues in changing times. Relevant data allows our community partners to make informed decisions, offer quality programs and evaluate project outcomes. United Way is pleased to provide links to such data and assist others to reach their goals and pursue long-term strategies that ensure Adams County continues to be a wonderful place to live, to work, to play, to raise a family, to build a career or to retire. The Extension compiled the Data for Decision Makers guidebook that highlights access free, publically available data resources. Links to sections of this guidebook are included below, organized by topics to assist your search. Where possible, additional links to data specific to local counties have been added:
