CSR and LCDFS collaborated to design three survey questionnaires. A) web-based survey of human services programs in the county to help understand the array of human services resources already in place b) mail survey sent to 2,200 households in Loudoun and c) “lobby survey” placed at ten human service agencies for clients to fill out and return anonymously. Project design used a stakeholders workshop about and two focus groups to guide the creation of a viable instrument that was used for both main resident distribution and for the agency lobbies. CSR and LCDFS also added a community assets inventory to inform discussions about resources already in-hand. CSR provided all analysis and a full written report of the findings from the surveys.
