During the past year, Community Services has been preparing a written assessment of the needs of local residents with low incomes. The assessment will include data from 1,165 surveys the county received from community members. The Needs Survey was Community Service’s opportunity to hear directly from families served by its programs and other with low incomes.
The May 18 forum will give residents an opportunity to provide feedback on specific information for the needs assessment. The final document will be available to a wide range of groups and will help determine funding decisions by nonprofits and Clark County.
