2020 OTERO COUNTY HEALTH CARE SURVEY
You are invited to share your thoughts and experiences on access to basic family services in our county by participating in an important survey.
The 100% Community Otero and the Anna, Age Eight Institute would like to learn about your experiences getting access to medical care, childcare, job training, transportation, housing, and more. The survey will ask about how easy or difficult it is to get these services and the types of challenges you face. The results will be used to make recommendations to our city and county officials and community organizations so that we can improve the quality of life in our county.
Your participation in the survey is voluntary and there is no penalty for not participating. In addition, this survey is completely anonymous; we will not ask for your name. All responses will be grouped together, analyzed, and presented in aggregate form so no one can be identified by their responses.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Thank you in advance for helping with this important survey!
2020 VIRTUAL CANDLIGHT VIGIL
If you would like to be a part of COPE's Virtual Candlelight Vigil, please light a candle and record a short video of yourself talking about why you support COPE and/or domestic violence awareness. Then email it to us at COPEdv909@gmail.com. If you want to protect your identity, just record video of the candle while you speak off-camera.
By emailing us your video, you give us permission to post it publicly. However, you may revoke this permission at any time, and we will take your video down ASAP.
Some suggestions for things to say in your video:
I light this candle for victims who are still with their abusers and who need our support.
I would like to honor my friend, who is a survivor of domestic violence.
I support domestic violence awareness because of my family member. No one should ever have to go through what they did.
I light this candle because my family lost their parent to domestic violence.
I support domestic violence awareness because my mother was killed by her partner.
I light this candle because one of my friends is a victim right now, and I want to help them get away from their abuser.
I support domestic violence awareness because everyone has the right to feel safe in their own home.
I light this candle because I hear victim's terrible stories every day at my job, and it has to stop.
I support domestic violence awareness because children shouldn’t have to see what my children saw their other parent do to me.
Or you can tell your own personal survivor story, if you feel comfortable doing so.
If you are talking about a victim other than yourself, please do not give any identifying information about them. For instance, don’t refer to “my sister”; instead say “a family member”.
