In September 2016, The Center became the fiscal sponsor for the Sacramento Building Healthy Communities Hub, one of 14 collaborative hubs funded by The California Endowment through its 10-year Building Healthy Communities initiative. The Center provides financial management and administration for the Hub grant, which supports the collaborative.
The Hub is a collaborative consisting of community residents of all ages, business associations, community-based organizations, government agencies and other stakeholders who live or work in the Hub’s targeted area in Sacramento, including Avondale Glen Elder, Fruitridge Manor, the Avenues and Oak Park. They are working together to support positive health outcomes through dynamic policy and systems change. Goals include improving the school system, creating better access to health care and better food options, making neighborhoods safer and improving overall health and wellness in the Hub’s area.
Building Healthy Communities is an initiative of The California Endowment.
