Community health is something that often goes overlooked in church and society, but it is incredibly important. In the other sections of our health page we talk a lot about options for personal health—specifically regarding diet and fitness. On this page, we’ll provide a number of resources for social health—both personal and community-oriented. For example: Resources for coping with mental health, poverty, homelessness, racism, domestic violence, etc. There are many organizations and entities in our area that help address community health in a positive way, and we want to curate a list of the most helpful for those who use our website.
