Project Description

The Center for Collaborative Change is proud to present the first results from our 2012 Newark Community Needs Assessment. The Needs Assessment is a combination of primary and secondary research including two surveys and a series of practitioner interviews conducted by the Center over the past year. The Physical Wellbeing, and Economic Wellbeing Sections are complete. The Physical Wellbeing Section has been broken into two subsections Crime and Public Safety, and Health. The Economic Wellbeing Section is broken into three subsections, Housing and Healthy Neighborhoods, Economy, and Education.
