Partnership is key to success!

Meeting Needs in the Community

Whether in the sanctuary or neighborhood park, we need our partners, neighbors and friends to help us meet our goal – for healthy communities across the District where residents can find and use preventive and clinical services to improve their overall health.

Roadmaps for community health

Residents Take An Active Role 

Coalition partners and ward-based multi-disciplinary teams (MDT) collaborate with LCHC to increase clinical and community linkages to improve access to health providers and related social services. These activities engage and empower participants to take a more active role in their own health.

To make a difference in the health of our communities, we all need to bind together.
