Collective Impact Lincoln on Monday will release the first round of findings from its door-to-door listening project in the city’s neighborhoods with the highest rates of poverty.
The presentation will be part of a 5:30-7 p.m. open house at the Malone Community Center, 2032 U St. A short presentation of the group's initial findings is scheduled for approximately 6 p.m.
Collective Impact Lincoln, a partnership between Civic Nebraska, Nebraska Appleseed and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization, was launched in 2017.
It focuses on six Lincoln neighborhoods: Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South and University Place. The group's goal is to connect with residents, learn more about the local issues that matter most and help build community leaders to improve neighborhoods.
Collective Impact Lincoln aims to knock on 10,000 doors by the end of this summer to continue its research. The group will knock on 30,000 doors by summer 2020.
