Lay Health & Wellness Program: Community Caring For Community Health Program

Program Mission & Goals


To promote health equity (access to health resources regardless of ability or need) within our neighborhoods through community and faith- based organizations. 

What is Health Equity?

You may hear the phrase health equity and not quite understand what it means. Health equity does not mean equality. Let’s look at it like this. At the start of the school, we want all children to be equal by having the same uniform. However, if the uniforms only come in small, not every child would be able to wear them. However, if we measure each child and give them the size that fits them, all the children would be able to wear the uniforms. That is called equity. This program provides the opportunity for access for everyone based on their need. That is called health equity.
