A technical report from the RAND Corporation presents a compilation of resources and strategies for community and faith-based organizations to expand and improve their health services. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides opportunities for organizations to build capacity and diversify their healthcare programming and activities based on community needs. Is your organization ready to take a leading role in improving the health and well-being of your neighbors, clients and stakeholders?
The report, Source Materials for the Healthy Communities Toolkit: Resource Guide for Community and Faith-Based Organizations by Joie D. Acosta, Anita Chandra, Malcolm V. Williams and Lois M. Davis is available as an e-book (and as a PDF) at the RAND website. The information in the brief will eventually be integrated into a toolkit to help community organizations in future health initiatives and preventive efforts.
