Our History / Nuestra Historia

ENGLISH

The city of Georgetown is undergoing unprecedented demographic growth and changes. This increase has also challenged the public and social service sector whose capacity for care has not always kept pace with the growth.  In this situation, the Georgetown Health Foundation (GHF) commissioned a needs assessment of the southeast Georgetown community that “explores the opportunities, challenges, wants, and needs facing low-income residents in Southeast Georgetown.” The Institute for Urban Policy Research and Analysis (IUPRA) conducted a needs assessment of the southeast Georgetown community that concentrated on the voices of the community. All of this primary data collection was then supported by secondary data analysis of census and other socio-demographic data at the city, census tract, and census block levels.  Findings from the focus groups and surveys suggested critical needs in the areas of public transportation, affordable and quality housing, access to health foods and nutrition programs, language access in schools, bullying and mental health, reframing of power differentials in services, and access to parks and affordable after school activities.  In addition, gaps include disconnection between decision makers in Georgetown and residents of the Southeast community in Georgetown. In the last section of the report, the project team offers recommendations, both short-term and long-term. Within our study, we found that the low-income communities and communities of color especially appreciated the safety and community of the small town. With the positive good will generated through this project, we hope that GHF and other city leaders will be able to continue to hold in mind the health of their most vulnerable citizens when making policy decisions.  (taken from the Georgetown Health Foundation website)

The SEGCC was established from those recommendations. This organization, working in partnership with local agencies, organizations, and city entities, are working to assure that the assessment findings of needs and concerns are heard and addressed. The SEGCC will promote and encourage that the community find and use its collective voice to better their lives and the lives of their families.  


ESPAÑOL

La ciudad de Georgetown está experimentando un crecimiento demográfico sin precedentes y cambios. Este aumento también ha desafiado al sector público y de servicios sociales cuya capacidad de atención no siempre ha mantenido el ritmo del crecimiento. En esta situación, la Fundación de Salud de Georgetown (GHF) encargó una evaluación de necesidades de la comunidad del sudeste Georgetown que "explora las oportunidades, retos, deseos y necesidades que enfrentan los residentes de bajos ingresos en el sudeste de Georgetown". El Instituto de Investigación y Análisis de Políticas Urbanas (IUPRA) llevó a cabo una evaluación de necesidades de la comunidad del sudeste de Georgetown que se concentró en las voces de la comunidad. Toda esta recopilación de datos primarios fue apoyada por el análisis de datos secundarios del censo y otros datos sociodemográficos en la ciudad, el sector censal y los niveles de bloque del censo. Los resultados de los grupos de discusión y encuestas sugirieron necesidades críticas en las áreas de transporte público, vivienda asequible y de calidad, acceso a programas de nutrición y alimentos saludables, acceso al lenguaje en las escuelas, acoso y salud mental, replanteamiento de los diferenciales de poder en los servicios y acceso a Parques y actividades asequibles después de la escuela. Además, las brechas incluyen la desconexión entre los tomadores de decisiones en Georgetown y los residentes de la comunidad del sureste de Georgetown. En la última sección del informe, el equipo del proyecto ofrece recomendaciones, tanto a corto como a largo plazo. En nuestro estudio, encontramos que las comunidades de bajos ingresos y las comunidades de color apreciaban especialmente la seguridad y la comunidad de la pequeña ciudad. Con la positiva buena voluntad generada a través de este proyecto, esperamos que GHF y otros líderes de la ciudad podrán seguir teniendo en cuenta la salud de sus ciudadanos más vulnerables cuando tomen decisiones políticas.

El SEGCC fue establecido de esas recomendaciones. Esta organización, trabajando en asociación con agencias locales, las organizaciones, y entidades de la ciudad, están trabajando para asegurar que los resultados de la evaluación de las necesidades y preocupaciones son escuchadas y dirigidas. El SEGCC promoverá y animará a la comunidad que utilice su voz colectiva para mejorar sus vidas y las vidas de sus familias.
