Readiness Tool: A Guide for Exploring Check & Connect at Your Site

Need: Overview

To assess the Implementing Site Indicator of NEED, consider the following:

  • Identification of focus population and subpopulations
  • Use of multiple data sources and disaggregated data to understand needs and assets

  • Community perception of needs and assets

Some site leaders find the positive evidence regarding Check & Connect promising; yet, after a deeper discussion, they sometimes discover a target population has not been identified or perhaps the need for the program has not been clearly articulated to all groups.
