This study aimed to evaluate the Neighborhood Association for Shelter Assistance (NASA) Implementation in Davao
Oriental and to create a Program Enhancement based on the findings of the study. Also, to compare the respondents'
assessment when grouped by their profile. This employed the quantitative descriptive-comparative research design. Using
a stratified random sampling with the proportional allocation, a total of 184 respondents out of the total NASA population
from nine sites in District 2 of the Province of Davao Oriental were surveyed using a researcher-made, standardized
questionnaire. By employing frequency count, weighted mean, and ANOVA as statistical tools, descriptive and inferential
statistics were analyzed. Results revealed that the profile of beneficiary-respondents varies in terms of age, sex, marital
status, educational attainment, monthly income, occupation, number of household members and number of years as
beneficiary. Further, the perceived level of program implementation of the NASA in terms of disaster resilience,
participation and project management, timeliness, accessibility, and sustainability are very high; hence the
implementation of the project has been efficient and effective. Nonetheless, it has to be improved to adapt to the demands
and hazards of today's socio-economic standards of living. Meanwhile, the significance of the difference in the perceived
level of program implementation of NASA when analyzed by beneficiary-respondent's profile were found out that all of
the indicators except the educational attainment revealed no significant difference; hence regardless of their differences in
their demographic profile, majority of them have similar responses. Finally, despite the high level of manifestation of the
success indicators implementation of NASA based on disaster resilience, participation and project management,
timeliness, accessibility, and sustainability; it is conclusive that there is a need of intervention by the LGU and other
stakeholders for the project in order to enhance and improve its serviceability in the aforementioned factors.
