Activating Communities

EHF is ACTIVATING COMMUNITIES by strengthening grantee organizations, congregations and coalitions to build health-promoting communities

Our Community Engagement team’s work focuses on building the capacity of grantee organizations, congregations and coalitions. Through this work, we hope to raise the voices of all people and build connections that transcend difference. This goal reflects our belief that healthy communities are created when diverse people join together to develop community-driven, people-centered, health-oriented systems.

Our aim is to provide the most appropriate guidance possible by customizing support to meet the needs of grantee organization, congregation or coalition. We help with planning community engagement efforts, strengthening and sustaining health-based community coalitions, convening and facilitating stakeholders, and developing community health leaders through Activating Community Voice program, interactive workshops, coaching and technical assistance.
