Summary/Reflection
I grew up around this neighborhood so I did not feel unsafe while conducting this survey.However, I am aware of the statistics of this neighborhood so I did not see as safe either.Many of the people here keep to themselves so I did not try to interact with them.This would not be an area that I would chose to live or work in.
117. Summary/Reflection
Rainier Valley is one of the most culturally and economically diverse neighborhoods in Washington.Many resources are available to the people of the neighborhood but getting them to seek or accept the assistance is another issue.One of the most common reason for not seeking assistance is due to a lack of knowledge.
