2015 Community Assessment Project Report & 2020 Vision Update
United Way of Johnson and Washington Counties has committed to conducting a complete Community Assessment every five years to help determine needs and trends and identify gaps in services and opportunities for progress. The 2010 Assessment was completed and Commissions in Education, Income and Health were convened to set ambitious 10-year goals to improve community conditions. The purpose of this 2015 Community Assessment Update is to compile the most current data available for the community to measure progress and allow community leaders, local governments, businesses, nonprofits and faith communities to prioritize and work together to address community challenges in Johnson County and to set a baseline for Washington County. United Way contracts with the Iowa Policy Project to collect, analyze and compare accurate community, statewide and national data in a reliable and unbiased process.
