Working Together for Successful, Thriving Communities
Quality of Life Study
Hinton Center partnered with The University of North Carolina-Greensboro in a Quality of Life study for the area of Clay and Cherokee counties in NC and Towns County, GA. Using information from surveys, focus groups, and interviews, the goal is for private and public organizations to work together to develop priorities and plans for community growth.
Area residents were strongly encouraged to participate in the study. “We need your help,” said Hinton Rural Life Center President and CEO Dr. Jacqueline Gottlieb. “We would like to know what you see as assets in our communities. There are people, places, businesses, and services that make our community great, and we want to know what they are!”
Residents contributed to the database of community assets by providing their suggestions.
