Preparing for the Future
2017 Survey Efforts
From January to March of 2017, PHCI and Black Diamond Outreach, a grassroots canvasing organization, embarked on a survey collection process in Northeast Park Hill, utilizing the assistance of some passionate community volunteers as block captains.
Carrying mobile iPads into the Northeast Park Hill Community, block captains and paid canvassers accessed residents addresses south from 38th Avenue to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and east from Colorado Boulevard to Quebec Street. A total of 587 surveys were collected that were provided in English and Spanish. Among the households surveyed, 568 were answered in English and 19 were answered in Spanish. Additionally, of the total, 156 households indicated that there were youth (ages 0-25) living in the household.
The survey captured how residents feel about the services that are currently available to children and youth in the community. Some of the questions included:
On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to recommend Northeast Park Hill as a community to a friend?
What are the top three things you are most proud of about this community?
What are the top three most significant needs within your community right now?
What programs are currently available to members of the community?
How do you prefer to be informed about community news and resources?
Do you have young people from the age of 0-25 living in this household? What are their ages?
If your child was struggling in school, where would you take them for help within the community?
What is the biggest support to you in raising your child or youth in this community?
On a scale of 1-10, how easy is it for you to get what you need for your child or youth from within the community?
