Healthy Plainfield

About Healthy Plainfield

Healthy Plainfield is a coalition consisting of a cross-sector of faith-based agencies, the Public School District, the Health Department and other key stakeholders to focus on sustainable change led by the community for the community. In 2016, we received support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-New Jersey Health Initiative to improve health outcomes for all residents in Plainfield. The priorities areas are obesity, education and access to care. A blueprint was developed to focus on creating awareness about healthy lifestyles; increasing levels of educational attainment; reducing barriers to increase the number of people accessing services and; putting systems in place to effectively communicate with Plainfield residents.
