Education & Advocacy

Illuminating Needs and Solutions

Illuminating needs and solutions by providing information, trend analysis, and documentation to inform human service planning, and the policies and funding which affect them.

Greater public understanding of needs and enhanced community advocacy

  • Analyze census data and administrative records to monitor trends and document current and emerging human service issues.
  • Educate about and advocate for public policy decisions to preserve and strengthen the safety net.
  • Provide contractual services to United Way of Greater Kansas City to document regional trends and assist with Community Impact implementation.

Community Data

United Community Services is continually reviewing both quantitative and qualitative data about local and regional conditions to better understand how poverty and homelessness impact the quality of life in Johnson County and the Kansas City region. The data is then used to create fact sheets, reports, and presentations on local conditions to raise awareness and advocate for a community response to assure that people have the opportunity to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
