This team of five coalition members representing sectors including healthcare, community residents, social services, business, public safety and education, is sharing the skills and tools from this Institute with their full coalition to strengthen the coalition’s capacity to make long-term change in their community. The team also includes a community coalition coach who is deeply rooted in the community and acts as an advisor to the team and the larger coalition as they embark on creating a Culture of Health in Asbury Park. The coalition is developing a blueprint for action, outlining its work and timeline for the remaining three years of grant funding.
