In our mission to improve the health of under-resourced communities, National Health Foundation employs three key strategies that collectively help us achieve upstream action.
Essential services to under-resourced communities that address immediate social needs, like providing job training, shelter, education, and access to food.
The relationship-building process that develops trust and understanding between NHF, community residents, stakeholders and civic institutions in order to elevate local voices in solving issues impacting the community’s well-being.
The process of systematic inquiry that includes the collection of data; documentation of critical information; and analysis and interpretation of that data/information to inform or improve work.
Strategies that focus on improving social and economic structures in order to decrease barriers and improve support that allows people to achieve their full health potential.
