United Way of North Central Florida on the Secret Ingredient for Successful Community Partnerships | Public Health | United Way | Scoop.it

United Way of North Central Florida is focused on the building blocks that lead to a good quality of life – education, income and health – recognizing that communities are stronger when children are successful in school, families are financially stable and people are healthy. One of their primary roles is as a convener, to bring hundreds of organizations together across diverse sectors to set priorities and create change.

 

As part of our series looking at the work of United Ways across the nation in creating healthier communities, we spoke with Debbie Mason, President and CEO of the United Way of North Central Florida, and Mona Gil de Gibaja, Vice President of Community Impact, about their community planning process, strategies for effective partnerships, and the role of critical partners such as businesses and the local health department.

United Way of Santa Cruz County: Partnering for a Healthier Community

 

In 2004, the United Way of Santa Cruz County, the Children’s Network and several other community based organizations convened over 150 local agencies representing a wide array of sectors to create a comprehensive plan to address the rising rates of childhood overweight in Santa Cruz County.

 

Go For Health! partners include schools, parents, health care professionals, local media, local markets/businesses, city planners, community based non-profits, and local and state policy-makers—as well as the affected youth themselves—working together to effect long-term change in reducing the rates of obesity by enacting changes in the community such as improving healthy food offerings at restaurants and markets, and increasing transportation options.
