Hub Structure & Staff

The Healthy Richmond Hub is a partnership of community residents and stakeholders, working in concert to improve the health of all of our children and families in Richmond. The many parts to the hub structure – in the diagram below – say it all…It takes all of us collaborating together to make our vision a reality.

At the center of it all, the Hub is led by a Steering Committee, composed of 25 members representing a diverse set of community stakeholders with a sub-group that serves as an Executive Committee; Action Teams focused on taking action on the Hub’s priority outcomes; Communications and Evaluation Committees; and 31 Healthy Richmond Hub Partners that receive funding from The California Endowment to work on the strategies that are in alignment with our priorities.

We support the work by planning, managing, and supporting the initiative through ongoing facilitation, technology and communications support, data collection and reporting, and coordination of all the logistics related to collective activities.
