Keywords: Community Engagement, Housing, Patient Engagement, Social Determinants of Health (SDoH)
Developing and implementing a community engagement strategy can feel daunting, but meaningful outreach and collaboration leads to the creation of successful strategies to address community health challenges.
This whitepaper describes how a cross-sector learning collaborative in the Bay Area used focus groups to inform the development of an impactful community engagement strategy. These focus groups helped to elevate local residents as key decision-makers in driving the collaborative’s action agenda forward — resulting in a community-centered initiative that works to address the intersection of health and housing affordability in the region.
