IUPR Working in West Dallas on Cooperative Community Metrics

Institute for Urban Policy Research   (Dallas)

May 2011

The Institute has been engaged by the Dallas Faith Communities Coalition, a non-profit working in the West Dallas neighborhoods, to develop a set of common performance and outcome metrics for the non-profits participating in the Coalition’s West Dallas Community Collaborative. In addition to employing the methodologies piloted by the Urban Institute and What Works, we will also be conducting a community quality of life survey, executed largely by community volunteers.
