Support our Community Liaison (CL) Framework! CLs are residents who are hired onto project teams working to advance policies, programs & environmental changes that improve the health and quality of life of those most in need. This concept is a tested model for citizen-centered engagement in government & community.
Your Donations Help To:
●Expand & strengthen our CL Framework through increased training opportunities for residents and providing more opportunities for CLs to provide leadership within community-wide health equity initiatives.
●Create a train-the-trainer model to teach other organizations and government agencies to adopt the innovative CL Framework to ensure residents are integrated throughout decision-making & are building community power.
●Increase our advocacy around the issues that matter to our communities
●Provide training and support to local organizations in incorporating health and equity in their practices and programs to better serve communities with the highest needs.
We work toward real, community-driven change:
● The right to grow up & live in a safe and healthy place. Creating safer & more accessible streets & open spaces for everyone to be active & socially connected through initiatives like our Activate Overtown & Get Moving Miami Gardens projects.
● The right to healthy food. Ensuring residents can access affordable healthy foods within half a mile of where they live & work through our Community Health Hub & Go for Healthy Growth projects.
● The right to grow old with dignity & enjoyment. Building systems where people of all ages can live, work & play through our work with the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative & Partnerships for Healthy Aging in Place.
●The right to live in an equitable community.
