Comal County Needs Assessment
United Way Comal County
This Director became a consultant and returned in 2006 for a follow up meeting. Out of that process came two initiatives:
Change and standardization to the process and policy of the funding application process
Conduct a county-wide assessment, now known as the Comal Community Needs Assessment
In 2007, the United Way of Comal County secured the financial and directional support of several organizations to support the Assessment:
City of New Braunfels
McKenna Health System
Carmage and Martha Ann Walls Foundation
Later that same year, the United Way of Comal County signed a contract with the University of Texas, School of Public Health to conduct the Assessment.
Another contract was signed with the University in 2014 to update the data in the 2008 Assessment and to include Guadalupe County data. Those organizations that supported this work include Christus Santa Rosa Hospital – New Braunfels, City of New Braunfels, McKenna Foundation, New Braunfels Area Community Foundation, Resolute Health, United Way of Comal County, and the United Way of Guadalupe County.
