Listening to community

Learning from those closest to the issues.

Solutions to community challenges are most likely to come from those closest to the issue. That is why community insights and perspectives are so important.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our community listening sessions, key informant interviews, focus groups and surveys in 2022. Thanks also to Health Resources in Action for your collaboration and support.

Hundreds of participants shared insights from across Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. These perspectives help us understand what is important and how we can help–while following community voice and community-led solutions. This community input informed the Foundation’s new strategic focus, which we’re excited to share with you.
