Survey Says . . .
Many Lowell residents and agencies believe that increasing affordable housing, access to child care, and citywide cultural competency are critical steps needed to meet the community's most pressing needs.
These findings are part of a 2016 Community Assessment survey conducted by Lowell Alliance this fall, to help us accurately determine and prioritize key needs. Eighty residents and 20 agencies - representing a diverse cross-section of city neighborhoods and communities - responded to questions about local supports and resident needs, gaps in services, and potential activities that may help.
We're still analyzing results and will share a summary report in early 2017. Stay tuned!
