Community Assessment Package

Community Assessment Package 2017-05-01T18:09:59+00:00

What Is Included?

Completing an assessment of the community you serve is an essential component of understanding what assistance your patients or clients need and developing a Community Health Worker program that effectively addresses those needs and also leverages existing community resources.

With the Community Assessment package, we work with you to design a comprehensive assessment plan to get you started on understanding your community’s strengths as well as areas for improvement.

We offer two options for our Community Assessment Package: a starter kit, for organizations that already have a community assessment plan, but need support in refining and moving toward implementation; and a complete package, which is designed for organizations who want to conduct a community assessment, but need more comprehensive support to plan and prepare for the assessment.

With our Community Assessment Package, you will receive the following:

  • Recommendations on the scope of the assessment and methods for gathering information.
  • Comprehensive assessment plan including recommendations on sources for gathering data, what levels of staff to involve in data collection, data analysis processes and reports, and options for recording and presenting findings.
  • Organizational capacity evaluation to determine preparedness for conducting the community assessment and needed training or additional support to implement proposed plan.

Consulting Considerations

For organizations who would like more comprehensive community assessment support or who would like to develop a community assessment package that includes data collection and analysis support from MHP Salud experts, please contact us for additional information and custom pricing.

Please note that this package and associated costs apply to one community assessment in one geographic area. For a larger scale assessment, or multiple community assessments, please contact us for a personalized price quote.

In our over 30 years of experience, we have found that in-person, engaging, and highly interactive training sessions are a key to success in preparing Community Health Workers to work effectively in a range of programs. Also, because of the highly customized and interactive nature of the Supervisor and Community Health Worker training sessions included with this package, the training components are only available as an on-site training.
