Project Description

CHEER's mission is to provide people with the knowledge and ability to create healthy, thriving communities. CHEER is a community-driven process for identifying community vision and goals, and for gathering the information and resources needed to measure and fulfill them. CHEER uses community indicators, data that measures local conditions, to serve as benchmarks. Indicators and participatory research enable community members and decision makers to understand how the community is doing, make informed decisions, and take actions to make the community better. In the CHEER process, a diverse collaboration of community-minded residents and others select indicators using an open process of visioning, goal-setting, and indicator selection. This approach develops measures for the neighborhood level, reflecting the community's diversity and its multiple needs more effectively than traditional measures.
