Community Health Programs

Building Vibrant Communities

In 2010, Whittier established a new program in partnership with Boston Housing Authority to provide expanded programming within BHA developments in Whittier’s service area. The programming is designed to specifically address social and environmental determinants that are leading to poor health outcomes for residents. These include providing health screenings, nutritional counseling, life-coaching, exercise opportunities, and youth programming aimed at violence prevention. The overall goal of Building Vibrant Communities is to address high rates of CVD, obesity, and depression among public housing residents.
