LISC Institute Webinar: Healthy Neighborhood Healthy Families Initiative


In this webinar, representatives from Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Community Development for All People provide an overview of their, “Healthy Neighborhood Healthy Families Initiative,” or HNHF, which received a Fannie Mae innovation grant. The panelists give background on how a hospital and its partners started treating a neighborhood as a “patient” and launched a multi-pronged housing strategy to begin overcoming some of the health and other societal effects of 80 years of redlining and institutional racism on the Southern Orchards neighborhood on the South Side of Columbus, Ohio.

Specifically, the webinar covers how the hospital staffed this initiative, incorporated the community’s needs, and managed several interventions, which included programs focused on home repair, rehabilitation and home ownership, construction, career development, and rental housing.

This webinar is for anyone interested in the connections between anchor institutions, health, housing and community revitalization.
