Identify steps for obtaining credible, unbiased information.Dr. Casiano and Class, Currently the local city has limited resources to help the poor and homeless populations. A local nonprofit and a university have decided to work together to create a resource center. The resource center will be a drop-in center with an emergency shower, laundry room, and other amenities. The idea is to have social workers and interns run the resource center to help the population navigate the system and locate the appropriate resources so that the individuals can receive the help that they need. The local university is utilizing the nonprofit to collect data by conducting a needs assessment. Currently this implementation stage is the where the needs assessment is at in the resource center (Dudley, 2020). The form of needs assessment is interviews and surveys. The clients that come into the nonprofit for services as well as pop up locations around the city with incentives to interview the homeless population. Because these are the potential clients of the resource center, they would ultimately be valuable resources for data. The data will then be used to write grants for what is needed in the resource center.
