Conduct interviews with several community residents and leaders to identify potential community problems/issues and resources which exist in the community

Social workers must develop a thorough understanding of community structure and dynamics
before actively intervening in a community. They develop an understanding of the community by
gathering information from a variety of sources and critically analyzing the collected information.
Careful analysis of community data provides an essential foundation for effective intervention.
For the community analysis paper, each student is expected to:
Select a geographic community for study, using guidelines discussed in class ( please reference your paper based on an issue in Durham NC). if you can’t please base it off of something from NC in general to find pictures and evidence/ charts, etc.
Base the profile on a combination of observation printed information, and interviews conducted.
-Gather printed information from a variety of sources such as city and/or county, the government, a local planning council, neighborhood associations, public library, local newspapers, and relevant Internet Web sites.
-Conduct interviews with several community residents and leaders to identify potential community problems/issues and resources which exist in the community
-Students may use maps and photos to illustrate issues in the community. For example, photos of the schools, churches, or hospitals can indicate the major factors of the community. The photos must have captions.
-Must have references for the resources/photos/ data at the end of paper.
-Attached below is a 45 page example of paper. please note that this paper only is a 6 page paper but all information needed must be included. (please use APA style format on essay.)
