Community Assessment


What is it?

SCRC is committed to helping Shippensburg residents receive the human services that they need to thrive in our community.  In order to know what is needed, we conduct a Community Assessment that helps us find the gaps in services and strengths in our community.  Our goal is to complete one every 5 years.  Shippensburg University students help us with this assessment.

Who do I contact?
