GC Healthy Community Coalition publishes community health needs assessment and improvement plan
Green County Healthy Community Coalition

MONROE — The Green County Healthy Community Coalition recently shared the 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and 2022-2024 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) with the community. These documents help paint a picture of the health of the local community and will guide the work of the coalition for the next two years.  

In 2021, the coalition began conducting the 2021 CHNA to understand the health issues facing local communities. To gather information, the coalition created an online survey, held community conversations, conducted key informant interviews, and gathered secondary data. All of this information was compiled and presented to a group of community members in August 2021. Community members then voted to select the three top health priorities that our coalition will address. The health issues that were selected are:

●  Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

●  Housing

●  Mental Health

After these priorities were selected, workgroups were formed to address each issue. These workgroups have developed goals and objectives that outline how they will affect change in their specific area. Each group is made up of representatives from various sectors across the county — healthcare, human services, business, faith-based organizations, law enforcement, public health, non-profit organizations and others.  

These goals and objectives as well as the results of our health needs assessment are outlined in our 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment document and our 2022-2024 Community Health Improvement Plan. Both of these documents are available on the Green County Healthy Community Coalition website:

These documents are for the community and are tools to help make Green County a better place to live, work and play. The coalition encourages community members to review both the CHNA and CHIP to learn more about the health of local communities — what’s going well, and the health issues facing Green County.
