The Community Caring Council and United Way of Southeast Missouri launched the Community Assessment Partnership in September 2001. Survey data and focus group input was collected during 2002 and 2003. In January 2004, the Partnership selected the top four priority issues. Development of a Community Plan for each of these four issues took place through December 2004, with approval from the Partnership in January 2005. For more information about the Community Assessment Project click here.

Four Priority Issue Councils (PIC) have been established to oversee implementation and recommend revisions to the goals, objectives and strategies as set forth in each priority area. Within these 4 PICs, several subcommittees have also been developed based on the focus areas under each priority issue.
