In an effort continuing through the end of May, the Mission Economic Development Agency is going door to door in the Mission, asking low-income residents for their opinions on issues such as public health, housing, safety and education.
Called the Mission Promise Neighborhood Survey, the poll aims to identify residents' concerns that could be addressed by available resources and connect residents to those services.
The survey is part of a federally-funded initiative, the Mission Promise Neighborhood/Comunidad Promesa de la Mission, which MEDA says will provide “cradle-to-college-to-career services for Mission district families and their children.”
Volunteers will conduct the survey during daytime and early evening hours, and will be identified with official Mission Promise Neighborhood/Comunidad Promesa de la Mission T-shirts and identification tags. The survey takes roughly 25 minutes to complete.
According to MEDA, “Any family that lives or has children attending school in the Mission district is eligible to receive vital services such as early childhood education, legal counsel, services to buy a home or save home from foreclosure, among many others.”
