Healthy Cleveland's Healthy Neighborhoods Committee

Healthy Cleveland's Healthy Neighborhoods Committee

The mission of the Healthy Neighborhoods Committee is to create the conditions in Cleveland's neighborhoods where people have equitable access to resources and opportunities to lead healthy lives.

Where you live, work, learn, worship, play, and grow affects your health. Get to know your neighborhood today!


Current Work:

In 2017 the committee plans to focus more on messaging around how the conditions of Cleveland's neighborhoods impact those who live there, with a focus on Infant Mortality. They will soon begin developing a strategic messaging campaign that seeks to point out the social, economic and environmental conditions that can affect the premature birth outcomes in Cleveland. Stay tuned for more on this work, and a second animated short from the committee.


Did you know Cleveland has 34 neighborhoods! 

That means there are 34 communities that make up our Cleveland community, and 34 places where we can work to create positive, healthy change! The Center for Community Solutions has created neighborhood profiles for each, where you can learn more about each neighborhood. You can discover things such as employment rates, income levels, demographics, poverty levels, and more! 


How we aim to achieve our mission:

  1. Develop messaging that illuminates social determinants and their impact on place and health.

  2. Develop and implement a formal approach for integrating health and equity into the neighborhood engagement process.
