Finding Community Data
One of the goals of The Building Block of Natrona is to better define the needs of this community. One way we're going about this is looking closely at U.S. Census data that's specific to Natrona - not Natrona Heights, not Harrison Township and not the entire Highlands School District.
This process will take some time as we do not have the resources to hire a data analyst to find and download the appropriate Census files, identify Natrona's data and then compile the information. However, it will be a worthwhile exercise.
As we know, Natrona is a wonderful community with many residents who care deeply about the neighborhood. Several factors have caused hardship over the years. And, we now see some of that reflected in the Census data.
Here's a glimpse at what we're discovering:
The Building Block of Natrona has registered with GuideStar, which is a widely recognized resource about nonprofits in the United States.
