Needs Assessment of the Haitian-American Community in Hillsborough County, Florida. 2nd Edition
Jean-Francois, Emmanuel
Online Submission
The decision to conduct a "Needs Assessment of the Haitian-American Community in Hillsborough County" was made to provide a quasi-scientific or a research foundation to our future intervention in this community. More specifically, the needs assessment aimed to: (1) Identify the priorities in the needs of the Haitian-American community, in Hillsborough county; (2) Ensure that the organization's goals match with the expectations of such community; and (3) Build a data base of information that can help make systemic and effective interventions within this community. The needs assessment was conducted through community survey, focus groups, and interviews with key informants. Like any needs assessment, this study has the limitation of not being exhaustive. It does not necessarily take into account all the needs of the Haitian-American community in Hillsborough County. This is a lecture, the lecture of the HOPE [Haitian-American Organization for Population Activities and Education, Inc.]. Two appendixes are included: (1) List of Haitian Churches in Hillsborough County (Updated); and (2) Needs Assessment Questionnaire. (Contains 15 tables and 1 graph.) [The "Needs Assessment of the Haitian-American Community in Hillsborough County, Florida" was conducted in 2004 with the sole financial contributions of the Board members of the HOPE. The first edition came out in October 2004 and was used to write the Strategic Plan of the HOPE. The publication of this second edition was made possible partially by a grant from the Children's Board of Hillsborough County (CBHC).]
