Civic Engagement

Please help us make a difference by supporting our efforts.

We envision communities where residents have an equitable chance for a healthy future.

The Hartford Health Initiative was founded in 2016 by Chavon Hamilton, a lifelong resident of Hartford, CT. The organization was started to take a closer look at the health disparities in the Northend of Hartford and understand what social factors influence the disparities-translating this information into action.

Community Outreach

Our 3rd installment of our annual family event was a success. The purpose of the event is to prepare youth with the essential tools for the upcoming school year and to increase access to health resources for the whole family. We had about 200 people in attendance. We were able to connect people to primary care services and provide preventative screenings such as blood pressure, oxygen, and STI/HIV.
