EHW engages neighborhood residents in urban communities, leaders and stakeholders, and public officials in thoughtful planning to determine action to address health disparities and environmental justice issues that plague adverse communities.

EHW becomes fully integrated into the neighborhoods we serve. Acting as a steward for the residents, and gathering the right people to the table to achieve real change for families. Our goal is to educate while building capacity of community residents  to become leaders in their communities,  setting the stage for community members to develop an informed plan of action eliminating  disparities and promoting  sustainable communities for all to live, work and play.

Some examples of the impact from our sustainable communities work can be seen in many Cleveland neighborhoods, including: Central, Mt. Pleasant, Buckeye, Stockyards, and Clark-Fulton.
