Our Health values a variety of partnerships which offer opportunities to collaborate within the community. Kendall Community Campus is home to Our Health Campus Agencies, offering a convenient location in downtown Winchester to better serve its clients. In 2004, Our Health created a Volunteer Action Center which currently serves 85 Health and Human Service agencies as Our Health Partner Agencies. Our Health strives to create and engage in a variety of agency partnerships, which opens the door to more effectively meet the needs of our community! We realize that we have a role in shaping services in our community, but we also realize that our role must connect and collaborate with the missions of all other non-profit, health and human service agencies that are our neighbors, in order to be genuinely effective!
Education, Training, & Technical Resources
Each year the Our Health team provides hundreds of hours of training and technical support for our partners and community-at-large. Training programs are developed based on a partner needs assessment to provide targeted workshops and roundtables on current best practices. Additionally, Our Health provides our partners with access to eight state-of-the-art campus conference rooms and a 10-workstation computer training lab, of which most are equipped with audio-visual equipment, screens, white boards, along with updated cable connections. Our Health is committed to excellence in developing strong non-profit leadership. We provide knowledgeable speakers in fields that focus on non-profit business management, governance, planning, sustainability and outcome management. Our goal is to help our partner agencies to be able to do their best, so they can be the best!
Grant Research, Writing, & Administration
Part of our ongoing support to our partner agencies is assisting with research, writing and administering grants and foundation support. We subscribe to the Foundation Directory Online, a grant and research software. This allows us to more readily research and apply for foundation grant opportunities that are targeted to the missions of our partner agencies. Every year Our Health successfully applies for and receives more than a quarter million dollars in grants.
