African Diaspora Immigrant & Refugee Community Needs Assessment


Grantee: African Community Housing & Development
Timeframe: April 2024 – March 2025 | Amount: $29,724.75


African Community Housing & Development (ACHD) will conduct a Community Needs Assessment for the King County African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community, ensuring accurate data around needs, strengths, and priorities.

This project will involve the following activities:

  • Hiring a consultant to conduct data analysis and interpretation
  • Hosting a series of multi-lingual Community Cafe Conversations to gather community wisdom and priorities
  • Collaborating with consultants to utilize qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection
  • Publish and share the final report with regional stakeholders

ACHD will use Community Café Conversations to harvest community wisdom and collectively problem-solve together. This work requires collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and relationship-building, all of which are elevated by the Community Café format.

ACHD’s Community Needs Assessment will be a public document, sent out to their constituents and available for anyone who requests it. ACHD will use it to communicate the needs and aspirations of the communities they serve to decision-makers, policy-writers, storytellers, and more.
