ABOUT THE CHA:
Every 3 years, the Hendricks County Health Department and Hendricks County Health Partnership work with our community partners to conduct a community health needs assessment. The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHA) is conducted to identify the diverse needs of the community that affect health and quality of life. The finding of the CHA are shared with our community members and service providers to bring awareness to the current needs of Hendricks County. This data also serves as a guiding tool that helps our service providers know which programs are adequately meeting needs, and what type of programs are still needed in our community.
WHAT IS THE CHA?
The CHA is a questionnaire type survey that anonymously collects data on different areas affecting health. This year’s community health assessment is estimated to take around 11 minutes to finish. At the end of the data collection period (August 1), the data will be analyzed and compiled into a report for the community’s reference. The survey is available in both English and Spanish.
