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.
2019 Household Survey
BRIDGE’s 2019 Household Survey asks residents of roughly 30 properties throughout California, Oregon and Washington to share their experiences. Residents will be able to complete the survey by phone or mail, and residents of some properties will also be able to complete the survey at their building with a member of the BRIDGE research team. The survey is available in up to seven languages, including English.
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.
