Community Health Services Division

Division Mission
The mission of Community Health Services (CHS) is to encourage, support and empower residents to be healthy, build capacity for self-sufficiency, and improve the health and well-being of the community.

The Division focuses on neighborhood-based community strategies that address root causes of health and social inequity in public education and income and economic development.

Key strategies that the Division currently uses include:

  • Promoting healthy choices through policy development, community engagement, education and information dissemination
  • Protecting the health and well-being of residents with appropriate interventions and health policies based on state-of-the-art knowledge
  • Ensuring access to quality health and social services through collaboration with individuals, families, institutions and available resources in the community
  • Providing culturally and ethnically sensitive services to the community
  • Engaging in on-going planning and evaluation in partnership with the community
