NeighborImpact's HomeSource Program Seeks Volunteers to Help Conduct Community Impact Survey
NeighborImpact is conducting a comprehensive community impact study in select northeast Bend neighborhoods. This survey will measure experiences living in Bend and is part of a nationwide effort on behalf of NeighborWorks America, a federally chartered nonprofit agency allied with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
NeighborImpact is looking for up to 100 volunteers to help conduct the survey, going door-to-door gathering feedback from residents. Volunteers will be dispersed to northeast Bend neighborhoods between now and the end of May 2017. All volunteers will be clearly identified with NeighborImpact T-Shirts and information about NeighborImpact as well as the survey.
This is the second time that this survey will be conducted in the area. The initial survey was done throughout the summer of 2013. The purpose of conducting this survey a second time is in an attempt to measure changes and consistencies in resident experiences.
"We are excited to revisit neighborhoods in northeast Bend and get the pulse of Bend residents and to see how Bend's experiences match up with communities from around the country," says Sonia Capece, HomeSource Manager at NeighborImpact. "Volunteers are an integral part of this process and we could not take on a project like this without the help of generous community members willing to give their time and energy."
Those interested in volunteering are asked to go to NeighborImpact.org/CIM and click the "Sign Up" link to select their preferred days and times. You can also contact Meredith Berrigan at 541-323-6561 or by email at MeredithB@NeighborImpact.org. Volunteers will participate in a training prior to conducting the survey and also receive a t-shirt.
