  • In order to do community analysis, we take advantage of many governmental, academic and private sources of data on ethnic and language groups. Here are some major sources of data for community analysis.
  • 48.4% of the borough’s population is foreign-born. Of that foreign born population, 55% came here between 1990-2006. So we can say with certainty that there is a continuing need for services for new immigrants. From the chart we can see that Latin America is the major source region, followed by Asia and Europe, with Africa just emerging.

  • You are looking at some other successful coping skills programs working closely with community partners.

  • Over the past 29 years, NAP has successfully forged partnerships to provide quality services to the diverse groups in Queens.
