Go to https://www.census.gov/ pick a county in North Carolina.The purpose of this assignment is to broaden your understanding of a community, develop analytical skills regarding communities in relation to specific populations and their needs, and to better plan and develop interventions to address issues and problems facing the community. Instructions:
This assignment has three parts: Part I Understanding Your Community; Part II Community Assessment; and Part III Community Action Plan.
Part I: Understanding your Community
To begin your understanding of your community, use the concepts (e.g. competition, centralization, concentration, gentrification, stratification and etc.) and identify community theories, as identified in the textbook, to best describe and analyze your community as it was 20 years ago and how it is today.
· Gather facts and statistics to describe your community. For example: How many people live in the city and/or in the town? What were/are their cultural/racial characteristics? What were/ are their incomes, ages, political affiliations, and etc.?
· Analyze the implications of the changes in the community. Give special attention to how these changes may have impacted diverse populations and populations-at-risk.
· Assess the current nature of interactions among different racial and economic population groups. How are these interactions impacting the community’s relationships with other communities?
Part II: Community Assessment
· Describe a problem that the community is currently experiencing. Assess the duration, intensity, and frequency of the problem. Discuss the probable etiology of the problem; your opinion, but supported with literature.
· Identify and discuss the key elements and characteristics of the community that make it vulnerable to this problem.
· Identify and discuss the key strengths of the community that give the community resilience and the potential for overcoming the problem.
· Identify major institutions – schools, factories, churches, attraction sites. How are these institutions contributing to or inhibiting the community’s ability to address the problem?
· Who is most affected by the problem? Provide demographic information regarding the population e.g. race, gender, age, socio economic status.
· Identify and interview at least three lay leaders in the community to determine if they are in agreement with your assessment of the problem. Discuss their perceptions of the problem.
Part III: Community Action Plan
· What would be your proposed plan for change? Identify and develop an action plan to address the identified problem.
· Select strategies and tactics: Which strategy would you use to bring about change? Would you need multiple strategies, if so which strategy would be used for each target?
· Address public images and relationships. For example, who shall be involved in promoting the proposed change? How would they be perceived by decision makers? Who can serve as effective spokespersons for the proposed change? Who should keep a low profile when the proposed change is presented to decision makers
· Assess resource considerations: What resources are needed and available to implement the change? What are the anticipated costs for the proposed change? What must be estimated? What sources of financial support or-in-kind donations should be approached?
· Determine the cost of doing nothing: What would this problem cost the community if nothing is done? How can the cost be framed to be persuasive to decision makers as a good investment to support the proposed change?
· Weigh the likelihood for success: How will opponents of the change effort frame their opposition? What conflict or contention would you expect? Who would support the proposed change? What facts and perspectives gleaned from your analysis of the problem and population would support the proposed change? What facts and perspectives would not support the proposed change?
· What are the ethical dilemmas inherent in the strategy?
Is the proposed plan sustainable? Yes or No Explain
Must use 2 peer reviewed articles

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
