The North Jersey Health Collaborative envisions improved health equity within Morristown’s census tract 435. Partners within this coalition represent public health, social services, and other community organizations. North Jersey Health Collaborative conducted a needs assessment that determined substance abuse is a key health factor impacting neighbors in census tract 435. This Blueprint for Action also proposes ideas to improve the area’s built environment as well as involve more residents and youth in civic engagement opportunities, with a goal of shifting the perceptions regarding neighborhood safety and sense of community.
