NeighborWorks Umpqua is excited to announce new community outreach effort

NeighborWorks Umpqua is excited to announce the return of our third Community Impact Measurement Survey, which will be conducted in select neighborhoods in Roseburg this summer. The Answers For Action Community Impact Measurement Team will be collecting data for the organization. NeighborWorks Umpqua, The City of Roseburg, and other community organizations use this survey tool as a means of informing local decision-makers of the needs and conditions of the community and sheds some light on the impact and value of various community development activities that have happened since the first survey in 2013. The team will be in teal blue shirts with Answers For Action, Community Impact Measurement on the front and NeighborWorks, Heart of Roseburg on the back.

“We are coming back to the neighborhood after three years,” explains Resident Coordinator, Ruth Smith. “We’ve successfully run these surveys in 2013 and 2016 and are excited to capture any changes the neighborhood might have seen since 2016. It’s important for NeighborWorks Umpqua to capture this information in order to provide important data to funders about the needs of the local area. We need your participation and hope you will help us with our survey over the next six weeks.”

The organization has brought in AmeriCorps VISTAs to help with the surveys this next six weeks. This survey will help NeighborWorks Umpqua and its partners identify if the work identified in the previous surveys have made an impact and if there are additional areas of focus to work on. If your home is chosen, NeighborWorks Umpqua hopes you will participate to ensure our community’s voice is heard loud and clear. While we have a strategic list for surveying purposes to ensure broad participation, we encourage anyone interested in sharing their voice about the community to complete a survey by contacting our office. For more information about the surveys, reach out to Tasha Oliverson at tpoliverson@nwumpqua.org or 541-622-3397. NeighborWorks Umpqua will also be offering a presentation of the results from the 2016 survey and a meal later this summer, keep an eye out for more details.
