We Are Participating in a Community Impact Measurement Project

Over the past month NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has been participating in a Community Impact Measurement Project to distribute surveys to community members and residents in Manchester’s West Granite neighborhood in order to quantify the positive impact and support NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has provided this area. Volunteers and staff gathered at the Cashin Senior Center at 151 Douglas Street in Manchester on Saturday, June 8th to kick off this important initative.   

The Community Impact Measurement Project is a collaboration with NeighborWorks® America’s 250 charter members around the country to gather feedback from the communities served by NeighborWorks® chartered organizations. The information generated from the surveys will provide funders with quantifiable data measuring the direct impact NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire, and other charter members, have on the communities they serve. This survey will be conducted every other year for the next six years to reflect the changes in the neighborhood over time. 

NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has been working since 2006 to improve the West Granite, and othe West Side neighborhoods, in real estate development and community services. We have invested over $3 million in these neighborhoods—revitalizing buildings, creating new homeowners, and reenergizing resident involvement. Our goal is to collected 200 surveys by October.  If an individual or an organization is interested in volunteering, please contact Michelle Ducie at 603-626-4663 ext 1200 or mducie@nwsnh.org.
