What We Do


We help communities thrive.

With the right resources, knowledge and support, communities can build a strong foundation for health.

At HEC, we work to empower community members to build partnerships that support well-being in their neighborhoods. By aligning resources, increasing economic well-being, promoting safety and strengthening social connections, neighborhoods can improve health outcomes and help all residents to thrive. 

Together we have worked to address the challenges of 2020, fighting multiple epidemics - COVID 19; racial injustice; challenges to mental health and economic well-being and food security.
