From the Foreword by Lawrence Green:
"[The authors'] combination of needs assessment and capacity assessment strategies provides practitioners with the right balance for formative evaluation and planning with community leaders who are cynical about another round of needs assessment that fails to acknowledge the strengths and assets of the community. Capacity assessment offers an antidote to the despair that comes with identifying one’s community problems....As authors of a book on program planning, Marshall Kreuter and I are indebted to Gilmore and Campbell for the pressure their book takes off of us to provide much of the detailed description and procedures of some of the needs and capacity assessment steps in planning that this book provides. Even if we thought we could do it as well, we would be ill advised to repeat much of what is now so well presented and documented in this book."
