How does my support help Urban Health Partnerships?
We all have the right to a healthy life. Your support can help UHP continue its work with residents, governments, and organizations to make sure we all have access to opportunities to be healthy.
Check out the ways we work toward real, community-driven change:
Everyone has a right to grow up and live in a safe and healthy place. We work to make streets and open spaces safer and more accessible for everyone to be active, socially connected, and able to access opportunities. We support the strengthening of communities to provide a healthy, high quality of life for everyone, especially those who have been disenfranchised. We work to make streets safer for children to play, get to school, and be active like in our Vamos A Jugar Play Trail and Safe Routes to School.
Everyone has a right to healthy food. We work to ensure residents can access affordable healthy foods within half a mile of where they live. We work to ensure Broward county residents can access affordable healthy foods within half a mile of where they live and work like in our Food for All Broward initiative.
Everyone has a right to be active. We work to make streets and open spaces safer and more accessible for kids and families, and older adults to be active like in our Vamonos Campaign in Little Havana and our Activate Overtown project.
Every resident has a right to be heard and to be part of decisions that impact their communities. We work toward the empowerment of residents to be civically engaged and mobilize around issues that matter to them. We work toward the empowerment of residents to be civically engaged and mobilize around issues that matter to them like in our Una Comunidad Conectada project in Little Havana.
Everyone has a right to grow old with dignity and enjoyment. We work to build communities and systems where people of all ages can live, work and play like our work with the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative and Partnerships for Healthy Aging in Place.
Everyone has a right to live in an equitable community. We work collaboratively with residents, government, and stakeholders toward health equity through advocacy, capacity building, and addressing structural inequities.
