In 2021, Smart Start Partnership for Children worked with Taproot Consulting to conduct a Community Needs Assessment to better understand the needs of families and caregivers of children 0-5 in Henderson County. This participatory work gathered input from nonprofit and community leaders, childcare providers, and parents of young children. Click here to view the 2021 Community Needs Assessment
