Place matters.  An equitable approach to ensuring that all neighborhoods become the kinds of places that enable all children and families to succeed and thrive requires intentional efforts to build and sustain community capacity. OPHI promotes place-based efforts to improve health. We work with Community Health Workers, community-based organizations, and residents to make sure communities thrive in a way that works for them.
