Using both a reputational approach (Daley 2015) and a community-based participatory research framework (Baffour 2011; Strand et al. 2003), this study utilized Martin County community members’ expertise on their own resources, wants, and needs. Through key informant interviews, partnerships with local agencies, and community surveys, solutions centered on mutual goals. This project gathered quantitative and qualitative data through the use of a mixed-methods approach (Faulkner and Faulkner 2018). Quantitative data were collected through a community survey, while qualitative data were derived from transcription and coding of themes found in community focus groups and key informant interviews. This study recruited participants (N = 82) using non-probability sampling methods - specifically, purposive and snowball sampling through local churches and community agencies. Paper copies of the survey were also provided at focus groups, in case participants had not previously completed it.
