Human Services Assessment and Plan

About the Human Services Assessment and Plan (HSAP)

The Human Services Assessment and Plan is an effort to better understand the broad spectrum of human service needs in the City and the gaps in access to these services. This work builds on the Community Needs Assessment completed in 2014.

The Human Services Assessment and Plan is currently under development and expected to be completed in 2022. The HSAP will include two phases:

  • Phase I: Human Services and Equity Assessment 
  • Phase II: Human Services Implementation Plan

  • The Human Services and Equity Assessment will provide a picture – drawn from data and lived experience – of the broad spectrum of human service needs and gaps in services. The Human Services Implementation Plan developed by stakeholders and contain a will contain a list of strategies and an implementation schedule for the City.

    Rapid Assessment
    The Rapid Assessment includes a review and analysis of data, background materials, and stakeholders as a way to understand the current human services environment and identify direction and focus areas.
    Providers Survey
    The Providers Survey will be conducted with human services agencies that serve Renton residents to service and capacity needs. The survey will be distributed to a broad spectrum of human service agencies and will be used to discover findings and guide the focus group 

    Lived Experience Focus Groups
    Focus groups will be conducted with Renton residents with lived experiences of human service needs or accessing human services. Input from residents with lived experience will   help further delve into the “why” behind what we learn from  the interviews and survey in previous tasks and identify possible strategies for addressing service needs and gaps.

    Sense Making Workshops
    Sense-making workshops will be facilitated with a subset of City leadership, human service organizations, and residents with lived experience to co create the implementation plan to address gaps in human services.
