Liberty City Community Collaborative for Change: A BUILD Health Challenge

Working collaboratively with  neighborhood leaders, FIHI, the Miami Children’s Initiative, Catalyst Miami, the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County, Jesse Trice Community Health Center and Jackson Health System  are partnering to develop innovative, upstream solutions that address crime as a barrier to a healthier Liberty City.

“Liberty City Community Collaborative for Change”  is one of 18 American neighborhood projects selected by the BUILD Health Challenge to develop innovative approaches to improve community health.

Using the principles of collaborative leadership and a results-based, data-driven planning framework, this integrated effort will connect Liberty City residents with health care, public health and community leaders to:

  1. Identify and address root causes of crime-driven health outcomes
  2. Assess and leverage relationships and community and health resources
  3. Strategically plan for improved public safety, using evidence-based and community-designed crime prevention and restorative justice interventions.
