Something transformative is
about to impact the way that projects affecting community and public health are
funded in Delaware. Healthy Communities Delaware is a new consortium of public,
nonprofit and private organizations in Delaware that are committed to improving
the health and wellbeing of low-wealth communities in our state. Research in Delaware and across the nation
over the last several years tells us that the health and wellbeing of people
are greatly affected by their living environments. Housing conditions, poverty rates,
unemployment, domestic and street violence, quality preK-12 educational
services and access to healthy foods have a significant effect on the frequency
and seriousness of physical and mental illness and even on how long a person
closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health and a variety of government
agencies, health care institutions, social service organizations, foundations
and businesses across the state, the Center for Community Research and Service
(CCRS) is proud to be playing a leadership role in the development and
implementation of Healthy Communities Delaware.
Dr. Steven Peuquet, former Director of CCRS and co-ambassador of the
initiative, describes it as a continuation of the work that CCRS has been
doing for 45 years, which is fighting poverty and creating better social and
economic opportunities for lower income people and families.

After several months of planning, Healthy Communities Delaware
(HCD) was officially launched on January 14, 2019. The Leadership Council is
now in place, and the Community Investment Council and Management team will be
formalized in early 2019. HCD expects to be operating with sustainable funding
and dedicated staff by July.
is committed to working with and supporting local community planning
efforts. Neighborhood residents know
their communities best, and so involving residents is very important. Also,
evaluation research will be an important component. Data collection and analysis will be carried
out on a continuing basis to determine what projects, programs and policies are
making a difference, which efforts should be expanded to impact more
communities, and which may need to be adapted in order to be more effective.
Hesketh, Director of Community Revitalization for CCRS, is very excited about HCD.
The problem isnt the lack of ideas or planning to make our communities
better, its the lack of resources and the alignment of these resources to
implement strategies in a plan. According
to Dr. Peuquet, the central goal is to encourage and align investments in low
income communities so that they become healthier places to live, learn, work
and play. This requires sustained
effort, he says, and the initiative is designed to support this effort on a continuing
basis for many years to come.
