We invite you to share your thoughts and experiences on access to basic family services in our county by participating in an important survey. The 100% Chaves County initiative and the Chaves County Health Council want to learn about your experiences accessing medical care, childcare, job training, transportation, housing, and more. The survey asks about the quality of services you have received and the types of challenges you may face accessing certain services. The survey results will assist us in making recommendations to city and county officials and community organizations to improve the quality of life in our county. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and there is no penalty for not participating. The survey is completely anonymous; we will not ask for your name. All responses will be grouped together, analyzed, and presented in aggregate form so that no one can be identified by their responses. You can also enter to win a gift card at the end of the survey! http://bit.ly/Chaves100
