Volunteers Needed for Peoples’ Self-Help Housing Santa Maria Community Impact Survey

Santa Maria, Calif., April 10, 2017—Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) is seeking volunteers to help facilitate the organization’s Santa Maria Community Impact Measurement Survey.

The volunteer team will survey Santa Maria residents near Blosser Road from 3 – 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 and from 4 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9.

Survey results will be compared to data collected in 2013 to quantify PSHH’s impact on the community and will take stock of road quality, neighborhood safety and access to resources.

The ideal volunteer for this project is an outgoing individual who is willing to speak with residents and/or volunteers to observe conditions and collect data. Volunteers will work in a team environment.

PSHH will provide volunteers with food and refreshments, a t-shirt, reusable water bottles, and all necessary training and supplies. Volunteers are not required to participate both days.
