Community Assessments

In the past nine years OPelix and its principals have been involved in over 25 Community Needs Assessments of different types. We have looked at health needs, social and family service needs, the needs of children and youth and the needs of professionals in the healthcare and community services fields.

We have talked to more than a thousand people in rural and suburban areas. We have conducted key informant interviews, focus groups and surveys. We have analyzed responses and data, we have catalogued resources and we have written and presented extensive reports. We have made recommendations and created detailed plans. We have designed programs to meet needs and many of those programs have been funded. In fact, our work has been used to win over a million dollars in grants.
