Coalition Building and Communications
The Center for Community Resilience brings together organizations that impact child and community health – such as health departments; health systems, including hospitals and clinics; social services; and community-based organizations to develop and strengthen community resilience. Our approach facilitates collaboration across organizations and systems that may not have a health-related mission but are critical to influencing health outcomes and building community resilience – such as criminal justice, housing, education and the faith-based community.
