Community Health looks at the ways a child’s health and well-being is affected by their community, be it their physical, social, or emotional health. We want to make sure every child has what they need right now as well as looking upstream so that other children, even future generations, have what they need to thrive. Children require our “voice,” and a commitment to driving change through both policy and community engagement to represent their interests.
