Creating healthy communities is more than just helping families find stable housing. HHCD helps build strong communities in its areas of service by collaborating with other local organizations to provide “Meet & Greet” opportunities introducing new neighbors, recreational and social events and resource fairs. HHCD encourages civic engagement by youth and adults through participation in local activities, and collaborates with partners on community-wide planning, programs and development. HHCD partners with educational, workforce, health, government, community-based and faith-based organizations to join forces to bring more resources and comprehensive services to the community.
COMMUNITY BUILDING ACTIVITIES:
- Consortium building with community institutions, local businesses and non-profit partners; HHCD participation on city-wide and community-wide committees
- Encourage civic engagement with resident participation in community policing, neighborhood advisory councils, social events, resident meetings, cultural exchanges and volunteering
- Facilitate health and wellness events, mentoring programs, community meetings, holiday celebrations, recreation activities, youth sports and concerts in local parks and community centers.
