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.

AMYWF Hosted Second Regional Convening Meeting

Regional Convening Meetings

We know we can’t make impactful changes alone. We need to hear from you, the experts. AMY will continue to host 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 understand what the most critical needs are. We are committed to hosting Listening Sessions throughout the year to ensure our funding priorities 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.
