Response to COVID-19

AMY Wellness Foundation is taking precautions following the recommendations of NC Department of Health and Human Services. We have decided that it is in the best interest of our community to virtualize, postpone, or cancel all events through April 8th.

Regional Connectivity

Better Understanding

We believe the most effective way to create change is through collaboration. We strive to understand health inequities that affect our communities by redefining who community “experts” are. We learn from advocates, leaders, and those with lived experiences through strategic meetings that ultimately drive our efforts as an organization.

Better Understanding

Become a Positive Force for Change!

Regional Convening Meetings

We know we can’t make impactful changes alone. We need to hear from you, the experts. AMY is hosting open discussions around Food Insecurity, Housing, and Mental Health.

Listening Sessions

Health is not stagnant. It changes and develops as our communities do. It is important to our organization that we are always listening and understanding what the most critical needs are. We are committed to hosting Listening Sessions throughout the year to ensure our funding process and the community needs are aligned.

Community Findings

With everything we do, we aim to create change with action. Through each strategic meeting we plan to build reports with our findings that ultimately shape the way our Foundation seeks partnerships. We want to build a healthy community by finding what is working well, where the gaps are and what partnerships will transform health and wellness for our region in the most sustainable, innovative and collaborative way.

What's Next?

In each meeting noticed emergings themes. Here is what we plan to do next:

Published Report

Design Funding

After synthesizing information shared by participants we will publish a report with our findings that will guide our collective efforts to address some of the greatest needs in our region.

For AMY Wellness Foundation, this report will help us design funding toward frameworks that are already working and help fill gaps that still exist.

Targeted Listening Sessions

Regional Convening Meetings 2.0

The emerging themes identified by participants will also guide us in orchestrating targeting listening sessions this summer.

By next year, we hope to host Regional Convening Meetings 2.0 where we can continue to work collectively to address these issues and dive deeper into our plan to impact lasting change.
