Community Health Councils began a two-year community-led effort in 2013 dedicated to reducing chronic diseases in Los Angeles. Our initiative, focusing on the historical communities of Pacoima, Boyle Heights, Central Los Angeles, Southeast Los Angeles, and Wilmington, brought together fourteen community organizations partnering to transform neighborhoods and improve health outcomes among low-income, vulnerable families and residents. We formed United for Health to implement evidence-based programmatic, environmental, and infrastructure changes. From promoting access to healthy food and active living opportunities, improving the access and quality of local preventive and clinical health care services, to reducing neighborhood-level environmental toxins, and promoting healthy, affordable homes, we worked towards the same goal—every community deserves to be healthy and thrive.
