Allies In Caring, Inc., is leading this two-year project to build the capacity for a healthier Hammonton by promoting resilience among Latino community members. Working “upstream” with a focus on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Allies in Caring, Inc., and its Hammonton Health Coalition partners are strengthening the community’s existing assets to foster connections. In addition, these partners are establishing a team of community advocates that drives policy, systems and environmental changes in response to issues put forth by community members. By the end of this project, a “Culture of Inclusion” will have been established in Hammonton, and it will provide a greater connection between Latino households and available community resources, programs and services.
