1. Resident Leadership Training
 In 2012 representatives from participating orgs
attended NeighborWorks America’s “Community
Leadership Institute” in Orlando FL. NeighborWorks
America’s CLI is a nationally recognized leadership
training program helping communities through proven
“best practices”.
2. Resident Identified Projects
 While at the CLI Training, participants identified a project
plan, budget and timeline. NWA provided $2,000 to help it
come to fruition. SERVICE and YO Center participants who
attended last year are organizing a neighborhood clean-up
event for June, 2013.

Success Measures Data System
What will be measured?
 Physical Conditions – Based on field observations of
structures and properties (block and parcel level)
 Resident Quality of Life – Based on surveys of community
residents of residents of multi-family housing
 Economic Impact – Of activities, measured by
NeighborWorks America using IMPLAN input-output
model, and
 Community and Program Context – Selected programmatic
data will be tied to NWU production reports to profile
activity associated with NWU lines of business.
How Will the Data be Used?
 Reports generated as a result of the data collection and
stakeholder interviews:
 Will be made available to help inform local decision making processes
by community based organizations (CBOs) and/or local government
 Can provide qualified and quantified data by CBOs for grant making
 Will provide the cornerstone for telling of the story about the impact
of this locally driven work
 Will be aggregated by NeighborWorks America for reporting
purposes to the legislature measuring the impact of investment of
public funds in community development work
SE Rsbg CB&O Activities - Training
 Resident Leadership Training – Annually,
NeighborWorks America’s Community Leadership Institute
provides high quality training in a major US city. Last year
NWU sponsored (2) SERVICE Officers and (1) YO Center
staff person to a 3 day training in Orlando Florida
 Peer to Peer Training – NeighborWorks Umpqua has
applied to a NW America P2P training program that would
allow for a couple of our CB&O volunteers to travel to a
community that has been successful with this process.

Affecting Livability such as
Safety Issues as seen through
the Eyes of Residents,
Businesses and Stakeholders
 Establish Neighborhood
Forums to Communicate
Equity Issues
 Bring the Right People to the
Table to Effect Change
What Do We Think We Know?
 Government, non-profits and grass roots organizations invest
substantial amounts of funds and volunteer hours into the
community every year to improve conditions and safety
 Local businesses are approached repeatedly to donate their
limited resources and to support a broad array of efforts
 Many individuals give what little personal time and money
they have to support community efforts
At the end of the day, did anything happen?
Can we measure the impact?
A System for Creating and Measuring
 Resident Leadership Training
 Creating Partnerships between Community Based
 Collaboration on Resident Identified Projects
 Data Collection – Through surveying Residents,
Tracking Property Conditions, Stakeholder
 Use of Nationally Recognized Data Processing
and Economic Impact Measurement Tools
 And Maybe… More to Celebrate
So Once More – WHY?
