Community Needs Assessment

Executive Summary

Kitsap Community Resources (KCR) is operating during a time of dramatic change. The economic decisions made at all levels of government will have a profound impact on the scope and delivery of KCR services for years to come. The purpose of this Community Needs Assessment is to provide the KCR Board of Directors with a broad overview of the state of our community, its citizens, and its service providers and further provide the foundation for the KCR Strategic Plan.
