Infographic of findings

As a part of the Pregnancy Assistance Fund project, the University of Iowa Evaluation Team developed a Needs Assessment Survey to better understand the pregnant and parenting population at participating community colleges. The assessment showed that the majority of students served by the fund were satisfied by the services they received.

The survey questions were designed to reflect the Five Core project domains: personal health, child health, education and employment, concrete supports, and parenting supports. The key findings of the report are represented on the infographics below (click for larger view). To read the full report, click here.
