COMMUNITY CENTERED HEALTH HOMES (CCHH)
Through the guidance and support of the Episcopal Health Foundation, HOPE Clinic is able to begin the journey of becoming a Community Centered Health Home (CCHH). There are multiple factors that affect a person’s health in everyday life. These Social Determinants of Health can be comprised of their environment, socioeconomic and educational status, and many other factors.
Through CCHH, HOPE Clinic has focused on the issues within the surrounding environment which community members endure every day. The purpose of CCHH is to promote connectedness and engagement throughout the community by prioritizing developmental designs that will benefit the Alief area and allow for a livable and walkable community. It is HOPE Clinic’s duty as a health center to build a healthier community. What good does it do to treat patients within the clinic if they are sent back to the conditions that made them sick in the first place? Because of this, HOPE Clinic is going beyond the clinic walls.
CCHH is a long-term project and is currently in the planning stages geared toward the necessary steps needed to instill change in the community which is sustainable. In conjunction with the Capital Campaign, CCHH efforts are aligned with transforming HOPE clinic’s future building into an example of a healthy, livable, and engaging piece of the community. In this way, the clinic expects to be a beacon of “hope” for the Alief Community.
