Believe in a Healthy Newark is a Culture of Health Initiative aimed at addressing social determinants of health in order to improve health outcomes for the residents of the South and West Wards of Newark.  The mission of our coalition has temporarily changed in light of the enormous challenge we all face as we seek to successfully address the COVID 19 pandemic.  Our new mission is to do our part in helping the Greater Newark community remain healthy during this crisis. 

In addition to our work on COVID 19, we are also encouraging everyone to complete the US CENSUS 2020 so Newark can get all of the Federal resources it deserves.

The coalition is currently focused on three areas of impact:

Healthy Homes: Promoting Healthy Homes with a focus on Lead Poisoning and Asthma

Food and Fitness: Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity

Adverse Childhood Experiences: Promoting Emotional Well-being through  Trauma Prevention and Building Resilience
