RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – A new group has formed in the Triangle area to provide organizations with a better understanding of the communities where they work.

The group also will publish “A Community Perspective,” a free quarterly newsletter containing analysis and commentary from experts in various fields about issues they face.
Current clients include United Way of Acadiana in Lafayette, La., and Claymont Community Center in Claymont, Del.
Goetz’ prior experience includes work with eCivis Inc. and Milken Institute’s Regional and Demographic Studies Unit.
