Community needs assessment survey

Community Needs Assessment Survey

We believe all voices matter. That’s why we’re conducting a Community Needs Survey across our service area. We want to hear from YOU about how our region can be a better place for all.


Why is United Way conducting this survey?

United Way serves 1 in 3 people in our 16-county service area throughout Missouri and Illinois. As a funder and partner to many local nonprofits, United Way has commissioned this needs assessment to gain a greater and more comprehensive view of the prevalent, critical and ongoing issues people in our community face regularly and in times of crisis.

Who should take this survey?

We want to hear from everyone who represents the broad interests of our region, including residents, those who serve people in need, government representatives, first responders and educators. Please share with your friends, family and coworkers so we can hear from as many voices as possible!

What questions should I expect to see?

The survey will ask about your vision for our community, your current circumstances and your top priorities for our region.

How will the survey results be used?

United Way will leverage the data and analysis of the needs assessment to inform future decisions to more effectively and efficiently serve the needs of the St. Louis region.
