Community Coaching

Community Coaches provide guidance to individuals and teams that are working with their communities to improve health outcomes and health equity. Coaches are knowledgeable in the many resources available from County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and regularly work with communities on moving from data to action.

The Rankings show us that where we live matters and health is more than healthcare. The Rankings are based on the many factors that, if improved, can help make communities healthier places to live, learn, work, and play.

What Works for Health is a database than can help you find evidence-informed policies and programs that are a good fit for your community's priorities. Explore What Works for Health.

The Action Center offers steps communities can take to improve health, as well as key activities and suggested tools to guide your progress. Explore the Action Center.

The Partner Center shows how we all have a role to play in creating healthier communities. By working together we can achieve more than working alone. Explore the Partner Center.

The RWJF Culture of Health Prize honors and elevates communities that understand health is a shared value and everyone has a role to play in driving change. Learn more about the Prize.

What does a Community Coach do?

Coaches can provide more information and guide you through the CHR&R resources. They can also help strengthen a community’s efforts to improve health and advance equity wherever they are in the Take Action Cycle. Each community is different; we respond to communities in ways that make sense for their unique needs.
