Current Project Teams:

  • 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 - The team is 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 - The team is working to better connect residents with the local resources and services they need to live healthy and well. They 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.
