2020 Community Needs Assessment

The Princeton Human Services Commission (PHSC) conducted a community needs assessment from 2020 to 2022 to examine the needs of Princeton’s low-income residents, and the community’s efforts to address those needs during the height and in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using data gathered from service providers, PCNA 2020-2022 describes the ways in which Princeton organizations came together to address the most pressing needs of low-income community members under the novel and uncertain circumstances of a major public health crisis.  The assessment also identifies shortcomings and challenges in that effort, which have important implications for Princeton’s ability to meet human service needs generally, and in the event of a future crisis.
