02907 Health equity zone
We create and invest in equitable and innovative solutions to help families in the 02907 thrive.
We are a mobilized community creating vibrant and resilient neighborhoods where families have the opportunities and resources needed to live healthy, prosperous, and fulfilling lives.
The Health Equity Zone (HEZ) is an innovative, place-based approach that brings people together to build healthy, resilient communities across Rhode Island.
Established by the Rhode Island Department of Health in 2015, WEHDC is the backbone agency. We are a collaboration of residents, community organizations and health professionals who come together to address root causes of causes of health disparities by creating projects, places, and programming where residents can live, learn, work, and play.
We strive to empower the next generation of first time
homeowners by providing education and resources.
