In 2017, BRIDGE launched its three-year portfolio-wide initiative to survey its residents about their experiences and satisfaction living in BRIDGE housing. Data are used to inform future housing developments, improve BRIDGE programs and service initiatives, and advocate for the development of more affordable housing and social services to policymakers, investors and philanthropy.
A summary of our survey findings can be found in our 2021 Who Lives in BRIDGE Housing report.
BRIDGE hired researchers from Harder+Company Community Research and the Social Science Research Center (SSRC) at California State University, Fullerton to administer resident surveys and analyze results. Both organizations have many years of experience in developing and conducting surveys.
