Community Asset Mapping is a strength-based approach to gathering information about community resources in order to guide solutions within that community through a combination of population level data analysis and community stakeholder engagement. This report provides a case study of asset mapping in Maine’s communities. Turning to Androscoggin County as a community in which to pilot this grassroots approach, the report explores existing assets and needs in the county. It also looks at how this information can inform investments in a community-based continuum of care that is responsive to both population level data as well as the voices of youth and individuals who live and work in that community.
