In 2016, local organizations and community stakeholders from Bridgeton’s public, not for profit, health, education and business sectors determined that a more effective approach to improving health outcomes for the community involved the formation of the Live Healthy Bridgeton coalition. The Coalition identified that the departure of major industries and the challenge to attract or create new industries in the last 40 years has resulted in areas such as employment, educational opportunities and the physical environment becoming community health priorities. Live Healthy Bridgeton’s Blueprint for Action outlines a plan to engage new partners to promote workforce development among the city’s youth and increase access to green spaces through collaborations with Cumberland County and school district partners.
