Community Capacity and Resource Mapping: Model Development.
Dedrick, Angie; Mitchell, Graham
This document explains the use of a model for mapping community capacity and resources that was developed by the community development office of a health group in Edmonton, Alberta, and applied in a collaborative pilot project in preparation for development of a community health plan. A brief discussion of the factors leading to development of the model and the community development office's goals when it developed the model is presented. In the next section, the following key elements of the community capacity and resource model are discussed along with the rationale behind them: initiation of capacity assessment (establish key contacts with the community, develop community partnerships, initiate networking, gather key print resources); survey design (design separate surveys for individuals, businesses, and associations); survey databases (develop databases for each survey); survey process (make the information sharing as mutual as possible); putting it all together; and communicating results inside and outside the community. A list of eight resources concludes the document. Appendixes constituting approximately 75% of the document contain the following: individual, business, and association surveys; Glenwood pilot report and participant follow-up; and Glenwood asset map of community supports for health and well-being.
