Executive Summary
This report has been prepared for Piedmont Community Action (PCA) in response to the need for a
community needs assessment.

Introduction and Methodology
Piedmont Community Action, Inc. (PCA) is a private non‐profit agency which serves Spartanburg and
Cherokee counties in the Upstate of South Carolina. Their mission is to provide a nurturing environment
in which low‐income families can seek assistance that helps them to become less dependent upon
government assistance. PCA strives to give low‐income families a “hands up” in the direction of self-sufficiency,
not a “hand out.” For the fiscal year 2019, PCA completed a Needs Assessment Survey to
meet the requirements from funders and other stakeholders. The purpose of the Needs Assessment
Survey is to gather consumer input for the planning of programs and services. This document is an
analysis of the survey results.
