The Jeffco Community Health Improvement Network, or Network, is a group of multi-disciplinary organizations in Jefferson County working together to increase healthy eating, active living and psychosocial well-being among low-income families with children ages 0-18. In order to improve the health and well-being of our community, organizations within the Network agree that we must align our activities and work together in a coordinated way. The Network is using a collective impact framework to create change in our county. Collective impact is used for solving complex problems by engaging partners from multiple sectors who agree to work together to define the problem, set an agenda, align communication efforts, and share data. By doing this, we can all have a much bigger impact. The Network aims to create system- and policy-level changes that make healthy choices easier for Jefferson County children and families, and is comprised of five coalitions, or “CoINs” (Coalitions Integrated in the Network).
Active Living Policy: Advance a "health in all policies" framework for decision making related to local and county land use, transportation and community development initiatives, and develop strategies to increase access to physical activity.
Food Access: Promote sustainable, evidence-based policies or programs that increase equitable access to affordable, healthy foods in Jefferson County.
Healthy Beverage: Create collective, strategic and efficient approaches to increase healthy beverage consumption in Jefferson County.
Health in Early Childhood: Align efforts across organizations to improve the health and well-being of Jefferson County's youngest children, as well as their families and caregivers.
School Wellness: Coordinate efforts across organizations to improve the health and well-being of Jefferson County's K-12 students and staff by supporting school wellness efforts and providing needed health and wellness resources.
Preventive Care and Mental Health Resources (page under construction): Establish methods and measures for the coordination of the provision of preventive care and mental health care.
