Our Projects

At its core, Healthy Richmond is about bringing people and organizations together to make Richmond a place where all children are safe, healthy and ready to learn. Our Steering Committee and Actions Teams are working together and encouraging others to work together to make this a reality.

With this goal at the heart of the effort, the Hub Steering Committee is driving the Healthy Richmond effort by developing systems for community collaboration and updating the logic model.

Healthy Richmond Action Teams are working on to create a collaborative model involving our Hub Steering Committee leadership, Hub Partners and community partners to impact our key Richmond priorities. Learn about the Action Teams and meet our first Action Team that is hitting the ground running on an issue critical to Richmond and communities across the nation!

The California Endowment makes multiple grants in Richmond with the purpose of supporting Healthy Richmond and forwarding strategies identified in the logic model. There are currently 31 Healthy Richmond Funded Partners and 40 grants to advance the work of the Initiative. Learn more about our Funded Parters and programs
