The Community Health Council of Wyandotte County exists to improve health and health care for the people of our community. We believe that residents have the ability, and an inherent right, to provide leadership in the shaping of physical spaces and public policies which impact their health. CHC’s responsibility is to ensure the collective experiences and expertise of Wyandotte County residents are represented in matters of health design and policy, as well as identify and maximize opportunities for collaboration, planning and implementation of effective community health improvement initiatives.

Over three years of intensive study, we uncovered massive opportunities in creating/sustaining health equity among a large section of our community. Historical property value discrimination (through redlining in the 1930’s) has snowballed over time into our neighborhoods suffering from inadequate housing and a myriad of environmental health injustices. Join Wyandotte County residents and community partners as we tackle health inequity through grassroots efforts. Get the full report and contact us at www.wearewyandotte.com

Our Purpose, Our Passion
