The WE CARE Survey

Resource Location:

The WE CARE Survey instrument is designed to: (1) identify unmet social needs (e.g., childcare, employment, and housing) by self-report (e.g., “Are you employed?”), and (2) using a family-centered approach, determine whether parents would like assistance with any of their unmet needs (e.g., “If no, do you want help?”). The “would you like help?” question avoids the common screening pitfall of presuming that those who have a need want assistance addressing it.
