How can Episcopal congregations work with EHF to improve health in your community?

We need to engage communities to take charge of their health. EHF advances this work through our partnerships with more than 150 Episcopal congregations. Those congregations have a long, deep history of commitment to making their communities healthy places to live, work and pray.  EHF helps congregations organize and focus their efforts to have the greatest impact on their communities’ health. Our work strives to help congregations go beyond church walls and into the community.
