Our Partners

We know that working together works and that well-meaning programs delivered by agencies in isolation will not move the needle on these perennial health inequities in our community. It will take all of us.

The interconnectedness of HIP-Cuyahoga, involving more than 100 agencies from government, academic, and nonprofit sectors, as well as dozens of community residents, represents a new way of doing business for our community. We are excited and grateful to be working with the following partners.
