Hello Neighbor Launches Our First Research Study

Refugees organizations are critical to building welcoming communities and fighting polarization

By Sloane Davidson,  October 23, 2019

As a part of the launch of the Hello Neighbor Network, Hello Neighbor commissioned our first research survey. The findings are released today! The key to the survey was looking at how volunteers and refugees view the impact of refugee support nonprofits. Findings from the survey include:

  • 92% (of refugees with children) felt their kids had more access to opportunities after working with an organization
  • 91% of refugees felt more connected to the city they lived in after getting involved with a local refugee organization
  • 93% of volunteers believe their organization reduced polarization in their community
  • 97% of volunteers said, as a result of volunteering, they advocate for refugee issues at local, state and national government levels
  • One in two people volunteering or working for refugee agencies said their discouragement with the current political climate was one of their top three reasons for getting involved

Check out more findings here!

We’ll be sharing more about how this survey impacts our communities in the days and weeks to come!
