Call for Volunteers: Amphi Neighborhood Survey

Collaborating with Amphi residents to improve the quality of life in Amphi.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Habitat Tucson!

WHAT:

Habitat for Humanity Tucson is embarking on an exciting surveying effort of Tucson’s Amphi neighborhood. Our goal is to measure how residents understand their quality of life and to help residents achieve their dreams for the community. The surveys will consist of 20 minute interviews with 350+ Amphi residents and will be completed by the end of July in 2019.

WHY:

Neighborhood Partnership is a core value held by Habitat for Humanity Tucson. It’s what drives us – and by partnering with residents, we center our neighborhood revitalization efforts around their visions. We have committed to collaborating with Amphi residents and stakeholders over the next five years to improve the quality of life in Amphi.

Neighborhood surveys are a baseline measurement for Amphi partners to evaluate their efforts in the participating neighborhoods. Once collected, the data will inform which projects and initiatives the neighborhood will embark on.
