Our Community Needs Assessment Is Ready

Every four years, a community needs assessment is developed to reflect changes in the
Affiliate’s nine county service area, to identify any gaps and needs in regards to breast
health/breast cancer in their community. The results of the assessment are compiled and
presented as the Community Profile. A statistical profile of breast cancer incidence and death
as well as socio-economics demographics of the service area is examined to highlight target
areas or groups of women who are in the greatest need. It also evaluates currently available
services, community prevention efforts, educational needs for targeted populations, as well as
formulates conclusions and recommendations for focused initiatives for each priority to position
the organization for maximum effectiveness. The results of the Community Profile will guide the
Affiliate on how to address these gaps and maximize efforts to impact change.
