Continued Discussion of the Development and Implementation of the 2022 Community Needs Assessment

 

Body

 

To: Honorable President Sarah Lewis and Members of the Social Service Human Relations Board

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

This item is a regularly occurring agenda item to discuss the development and implementation of the 2022 Community Needs Assessment (CNA).

 

BACKGROUND

 

This item is a regularly occurring agenda item to discuss the development and implementation of the 2022 CNA. The City’s Charter assigns the Social Service Human Relations Board (SSHRB) the responsibility of assessing and responding to the social service and human relations needs of the City of Alameda (City). To fulfill that responsibility, SSHRB has periodically surveyed Alameda residents to determine the scope of the community needs and to evaluate and publicize resources to meet those needs. The last CNA was presented to the City Council in June 2018.

 

DISCUSSION

 

SSHRB’s 2022 Work Plan identified the development of a CNA as a priority item. Under the Work Plan, SSHRB will:

                     Develop and finalize a methodology for the needs assessment

                     Collect data, develop outreach materials and translations

                     Analyze primary data and complete secondary data collection

                     Draft preliminary report for SSHRB approval

                     Present final report to City Council

 

At its June 23, 2022 meeting, SSHRB will discuss:

                     A draft list of indicators of data measurements (see Exhibit 1: Draft Revised List of Indicators); and

                     The June 9, 2022 kick-off meeting with the focus group facilitator, CERES Policy Research

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

This item is for discussion purposes only. No action is needed.

 

 

Respectfully submitted,

 

 

Eric Fonstein,

Development Manager
