Community Connections

Because health is determined by Social conditions.

At a Glance

The places where we live, work, play and learn affect our health, including in the extended East Palo Alto community. To live a healthy life, advances in our community are needed not only in health care but also in education, childcare, housing, access to food, our environment, youth, business, law, media, community planning, creativity, safety and transportation.

In order to be healthier, we need access to RESOURCES to help us meet our essential needs and we also need to join together in unity with purpose to ADVOCATE for ourselves and our community.

Resources

In order to provide the extended East Palo Alto community with up to date information on resources which can meet the needs of the community, our Community Advocates have been surveying our community to determine those areas where individuals and families have difficulty getting information. Based on this survey, we are gathering information on resources and contact information in these necessary areas and are developing a Resource Guide which will be regularly updated. This information is not guaranteed to be all of the services available and should not be relied on as the only source for obtaining information. We will keep the information as updated as possible. We welcome suggestions from the community on further resources, relayed by text or phone message at 650 327-7894 or by email to communityadvocates@herbanhealthepa.org.

As our Community Advocates continue to gather information and contacts for these groups, we will provide the information one group at a time, starting with Opportunities for Growth. Coming soon…Stay tuned

Advocacy /
Speak your mind

Everyone wants the best for themselves and their families and everyone has something to contribute.

Unity requires effort and an intentional process, and we need to be united to achieve a healthier community and stronger families. In the extended East Palo Alto community we value different cultures and we want to create space to share across ethnic, socioeconomic and generational differences.

The places where we live, work, play and learn affect our health, including in the extended East Palo Alto community. To live a healthy life, advances in our community are needed not only in health care but also in education, childcare, housing, access to food, our environment, youth, business, law, media, community planning, creativity, safety and transportation.

Moreover, we continue to expand our list of community resources, we are hoping that you who have used resources and found them helpful or have been unable to find the help you need will give your comments here so that others can benefit from them as well as help us to advocate for change.
