The purpose of the Central Oregon Community Needs Assessment is to assess and analyze conditions within the Central Oregon region that affect and impact the agency’s fulfillment of its mission. The assessment guides the agency’s strategic planning process, ensuring that the strategy’s focus is on addressing the areas of greatest community needs, the availability of resources to meet the needs, as well as the strengths and limitations of the agency. NeighborImpact completes a Community Needs Assessment every two years; this 2017 assessment will inform the 2017-19 agency strategic plan.
Awareness around lead in our drinking water in Oregon is rising and some schools in our state have had issues with high levels of lead in their drinking water. Given that children are especially susceptible to lead exposure because their bodies absorb metals at higher rates than adults, NeighborImpact thought it necessary to test all Head Start sites in our service area.
NeighborImpact Head Start is now accepting applications for enrollment for the 2016-2017 School Year. Children who live in Crook and Deschutes Counties may be eligible for Head Start, a free, high-quality pre-school and family support program. To register, families must meet income eligibility requirements and submit an application and income documentation.
