MISSION: Promoting community health through faith-based leadership
The Center for Faith and Health Initiatives helps faith-based leaders promote whole person health and community health through training, development, and collaborative activities.
The Center is interfaith and multicultural. Vulnerable groups are of special interest: clusters of people at risk for health disparities due to extreme age, poverty, isolation, neighborhood, and cultural barriers.
• Collaborative activities-- coalition coordination, regional planning participation, volunteer services, and partnership support.
