One of the topics that we have seen come up quite often throughout our research is that people would like to see an increase in the number of resources available to men in the North End. Often we hear from families who feel that programming in the area is doing a great job of providing services for women and children, as is very needed, but at the same time many men are feeling like they have nowhere to go to find help, or that they are being shut out of family processes altogether. It’s for this reason that Supports for Dads is one of our initial 5 Proofs of Possibilities.
We’ve recently released a survey on the topic of resources available to men in the North End in order to get a clearer view of where gaps exist in the area and what it is exactly that men in the community would like to see change. This information will allow us to better understand the issue so that we can more effectively develop solutions.
We’re currently looking for people who identify as men, who live/work/volunteer in the area, and who are over the age of 15 to complete the survey. After completing the survey you’ll have a chance to enter a draw for a $100 Polo Park gift card.
Please click on the link below to complete the survey, or if you do not identify as a man, then please pass the survey on to a family member or friend who you think might be interested in filling it out!
