Sandra Uriarte Community Case Study Paper Case Study Community: Nevada Identify the community that you are using for this case study, and write it above. Choose a community that you know about and can assess using specific examples from your community to complete the following: 1. Identify the stage of readiness of your community. (5 points possible) The stage of readiness of my community is Stage 8, Confirmation/Expansion. 2. What indicates to you that your community is in this stage? (10 points possible) The community is at this stage because standard programs are viewed as valuable and authorities support expanding or improving programs. Nevada is receiving more grant funding such as the $100,000 grant for the “Join Together Northern Nevada” program that will reduce substance abuse among youth and overtime among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse and establish and strengthen community anti-drug coalitions. Also at this stage efforts are focused on obtaining funds for new programs as well. Data is obtained regularly on the extent of local problems and efforts are made to assess risk factors and causes of the problems. 3. What can be done to increase the stage of readiness of your community? (10 points possible) There are many things that can be done to increase the stage of readiness of my community. In-service educational programs on conducting local needs assessments to target specific groups in the community for prevention programming can be either held with trainers brought in from outside, or staff can be sent to trainings sponsored by others. “Periodic review meetings and special recognition events for local supporters of the prevention program” can also be held. Another idea would be to let the results of research and evaluation activities of the prevention program be presented to the public
