    2. Resources/services available to clients 
    3. Program description
  2. After completing your checklist evaluation, explain whether or not the program effectively meets the needs of your selected community, addresses the social issue you’ve selected, and if there were any gaps between needed services and those provided. 
  3. Lastly, explain how this program analysis will help you design your program to fill any gaps in services provided. How will your proposed program address the social issue you’ve selected by taking into consideration sound management, stakeholder involvement, and effective evaluation strategies?
