In May 2009, Central Santa Ana was selected as one of 14 sites to participate in The California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities Initiative.
Santa Ana Building Healthy Communities (SABHC) is committed to addressing health inequities and improving opportunities to create a healthy, just, and thriving Santa Ana. SABHC understands that health is directly shaped by the circumstances in which people are born, raised, live, and work. Improving these circumstances is a collective responsibility and one that must be led by those directly affected.
Residents, youth, and organizations collaborate in three workgroups called: Equity for All, Health for All, and Restorative Justice. Each workgroup seeks to achieve systems and policy changes that advance human rights, such as: improved health and access to care, safety and healthy youth development that result from investment in prevention, intervention and re-entry supports, economic development, dignified and stable housing, fair prices, and community cohesion and engagement.
