Report Type: Asset Mapping (formerly Initiascape©)
Background: An Initiascape© provides a map of the landscape of our community’s efforts about a particular initiative. It also serves as a resource directory of those programs that are connected through a common initiative. Initiascapes© are designed to increase opportunities for collaboration and cooperation in order to more efficiently use our community’s resources. This Initiascape© study about Emergency Food Assistance is designed to help connect the community “dots” of those who provide emergency food assistance in Forsyth County.
