2015 Tarrant County

Community Needs Assessment


July 29, 2015

The Botanic Gardens



On July 29, the Honorable Judge Glen Whitley,

the Needs Assessment Leadership Council,

and Challenge of Tarrant County presented their findings for the 2015 Community Needs Assessment. Agency leadership from across Tarrant County came to hear the report.


The data gathered indicated that only one in ten people who need help with substance use disorder (SUD) are finding the help they need. "The Other Nine", therefore, became a key focus of the report. Thank you to all who participated in the creation of the data, and for those who attended the event.
