An effort built for the community, by the community
OHC is community-first, community-forward effort! We address the obstacles of health equity by creating a collaborative ecosystem for cooperation and action.
FBOs and CBOs are key
Faith and community-based organizations (CBOs) are trusted by their community members.
Linking them into a national network constructs a culturally appropriate model for crafting community-based approaches that improve health equity.
Collaboration at it's best
The OHC platform links CBOs locally, regionally, and nationally, and enables them to reach more community members.
Our best-in-class technology helps our CBOs to exchange ideas, combine data, share experiences, and engage community.
Support from the OHC team
No matter their location, all of our CBOs are connected and offered a variety of resources to strengthen them.
The OHC team works directly with them to empower them, help them connect with each other, and more effectively engage community.
