The Westchester County Youth Bureau Calls for Proposals: Community Needs Assessment

(White Plains, NY) – The Westchester County Youth Bureau is requesting proposals from qualified proposers to conduct a countywide Community Needs Assessment specific to children, youth, and families. The Needs Assessment will serve to identify existing resources, assess persistent needs, emerging trends, and detect gaps in services. The proposal due date is September 30, 2021 at 4:00 pm.

County Executive George Latimer stated: “Given the ripple effect of Covid-19 and the ongoing needs of children, youth, and families, the Needs Assessment is timely and needed. It is always our mission to better understand the needs of Westchester County’s residents which is why our leadership within the Youth Bureau and other departments are examining various aspects of the community.”

Youth Bureau Director Dr. DaMia Harris-Madden stated: “the Youth Bureau is committed to ongoing learning and informed decision making. For the past three years, we have planned and implemented policies to improve the quality of youth service delivery; yet, the Needs Assessment designed with a participatory evaluation lens, will strengthen our aims and identify the vast strengths and opportunities where children, youth, and families are concerned.”

Recognizing the breadth of this project, the Youth Bureau has created a workgroup comprised of Youth Board members and community stakeholders that will collaborate with the selected contractor to support the Needs Assessment.
