The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a collaborative project between United Way, Lane County Public Health, PeaceHealth, and Trillium conducted every three years to inform the next Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The ultimate goal is to improve the mental, physical, economic and social health of those in our community. This community-driven process has only been possible because of the amazing participation from our partners and community members. Thank you!

The 2015 Lane County Community Health Needs Assessment is more than charts and graphs. It is more than statistics and numbers. This assessment introduces a new approach to community health, one where decisions about programs and interventions are not based solely on “the numbers,” but also on what community members feel is important as they strive to live a healthier life.

Vision and Values
In June 2015, a multi-site community health visioning session provided the platform for 135 community members to share their views on the desired health of Lane County. This input was used in the development of our community vision and values:

Working together to create a caring community where all people can live a healthier life.

Four Assessments
Between May 2015 and January 2016, four assessments were conducted with the help of thousands of community members and hundreds of organizations. These assessments provide a comprehensive snapshot of the specific health needs and opportunities in Lane County.
