Success Measures Data System

What will be measured?

Physical Conditions – Based on field observations of structures and properties (block and parcel level)

Resident Quality of Life – Based on surveys of community residents of residents of multi-family housing

Economic Impact – Of activities, measured by

NeighborWorks America using IMPLAN input-output model, and

Community and Program Context – Selected programmatic data will be tied to NWU production reports to profile activity associated with NWU lines of business.

How Will the Data be Used?

 Reports generated as a result of the data collection and stakeholder interviews:

 Will be made available to help inform local decision making processes by community based organizations (CBOs) and/or local government

 Can provide qualified and quantified data by CBOs for grant making purposes

 Will provide the cornerstone for telling of the story about the impact of this locally driven work

 Will be aggregated by NeighborWorks America for reporting purposes to the legislature measuring the impact of investment of public funds in community development work

SE Rsbg CB&O Activities - Training

Resident Leadership Training – Annually,

NeighborWorks America’s Community Leadership Institute provides high quality training in a major US city. Last year

NWU sponsored (2) SERVICE Officers and (1) YO Center staff person to a 3 day training in Orlando Florida

Peer to Peer Training – NeighborWorks Umpqua has applied to a NW America P2P training program that would allow for a couple of our CB&O volunteers to travel to a community that has been successful with this process.

Local Volunteer Training for survey and inventory work.

Identify Problems and Issues

Affecting Livability such as

Safety Issues as seen through the Eyes of Residents,

Businesses and Stakeholders

Establish Neighborhood

Forums to Communicate

Equity Issues

Bring the Right People to the

Table to Effect Change

What Do We Think We Know?

Government, non-profits and grass roots organizations invest substantial amounts of funds and volunteer hours into the community every year to improve conditions and safety

Local businesses are approached repeatedly to donate their limited resources and to support a broad array of efforts

Many individuals give what little personal time and money they have to support community efforts

At the end of the day, did anything happen?

Can we measure the impact?
