Community Needs Assessment Results

Updated: Sep 5, 2019

The Riley County Seniors' Service Center (RCSSC), in conjunction with other social service agencies and community organizations, coordinated a comprehensive community needs assessment for Riley County. 

The goals of the needs assessment were to: 

1) identify the assets of the community

2) identify unmet community needs

3) initiate discussions to identify possible solutions to address the unmet needs.  

It has been more than 20-years since the last comprehensive community needs assessment.

RCSSC contracted with the Center for Community Support & Research at Wichita State University to conduct the needs assessment.

Funding for the project was provided by: Caroline F. Peine Charitable Foundation (Manhattan Fund) Konza United Way Mercy Regional Health Center Riley County Council on Aging Wamego Health Center

Members of the survey design team were: Konza United Way Mercy Regional Health Center Riley County Health Department Riley County Seniors' Service Center
