COMMUNITY HEALTH C228 V3 TASK 1 Scavenger hunt is a good way to find out about all the resources/facilities that are offered and available to the citizens of Sentinel City. It allows you to put together points of contacts for each resource, as well as, gather any referral information from each service available in order to provide the best service possible to the citizens of Sentinel City. Windshield Survey As I rode the bus and walked through Sentinel City obtaining my windshield survey I noticed a lot of fast food restaurants, limited green space/outdoor recreation areas, poor sanitation. Upon completed the neighborhood safety assessment, scavenger hunt, and speaking with the citizens of Sentinel City it really resonated with me the amount of homeless citizens, unvaccinated citizens, and the lack of health and dental care. I feel that the citizens of Sentinel City could benefit from easier accessibility to healthcare, psychiatry care, dental care, and preventive education for drug/alcohol cessation. I also feel that Sentinel City would benefit from turning some of the abandoned buildings into homeless shelters. This not only would cut down on hazards but could help improve sanitation throughout the city, esp. at the reservoir.
