Habitat completes first Harrisburg surveys

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Habitat will take the weakest links, one being inadequate street lighting for example, provided in the survey and work with local government or entities in charge to improve the issue.

The local Habitat affiliate follows an organizational trend that not only builds houses but new communities.

“If you look at these surveys, there is nothing in there asking if you want a new house. It’s about how satisfied are you with your neighborhood,” Thirumal said.

Another aspect of the Harrisburg NRI gauges personal homeowner need. This aspect of “Adopt-A-Home” gathers donor funds to help home improvements for those with the greatest need.

This round covered two small neighborhoods. Now that this micro sample is complete, Habitat will soon open up the survey to the rest of the Harrisburg community.

This event is significant to improving the quality of life for the community. Through NRI, Habitat is able to serve more families by responding to community needs with an expanded array of products, services and partnerships. 

Habitat will compile data to see if quality of life in the neighborhood increases a year later after home improvements are made in the area.
