The Danville Chapter was formed in 2020 and consists of Health Collaborative members who live or work in Danville. We organize around projects and initiatives specific to the City of Danville. Our Chapter meetings provide opportunities for shared learning and networking. If you have an idea for something you would like to work on or would like to give a presentation during a chapter meeting, please contact Kitt.

Current and Ongoing Efforts:
- Community Day Center - We are working closely with local homelessness service providers and Community Health Workers to develop a day center where people without any other place can go to get shelter from the elements while also accessing supportive resources.
- Housing First - The team is working to develop a Housing First pilot program to address chronic homelessness in Danville. The Housing First approach connects individuals to safe, stable, affordable housing and support while removing the barriers that typically keep people from accessing other housing assistance programs.
- Health and Equity in All Policies - We are working closely with the City of Danville to develop a framework for decision making that includes evaluation of the health and equity impacts of new programs and policies. The goal is to apply this framework to the development of the City's new comprehensive plan.
- Resource Awareness and Development - We are working to better connect residents with the local resources and services they need to live healthy and well. We are exploring ways to raise awareness for the resources that already exist locally, while also helping human service providers work collaboratively to identify gaps in resources and better meet local needs.
- Maternal Health Task Force - This taskforce, formed in the spring of 2021, is working to raise awareness for racial disparities in maternal health outcomes and maternal healthcare needs by sharing the lived experiences of local birthing persons. Their goals are to build stronger relationships with providers, provide new maternal and infant health educational resources, and to develop a local doula training and certification program.
