Our values matter
OHIP provides us with time and space to reconnect with each other in an authentic way. Our shared values are our foundation that help us achieve our goals to live a healthy life together.
What are your values? What can you bring to OHIP?
We help each other
OHIP is a community health project of the NRCDC. It came to existence in 2017 as an extension of the OST/South Union community garden. We want to increase our capacity to create more programs, services, and policies that prioritize equity, sustainable healthy behaviors, and overall health for OSTSU residents.
The Episcopal Health Foundation generously funded an effort to support community health impact in the following areas:
- Access to Healthy Food
- Safe Places for Physical Activity
- Neighborhood Safety
- Mental + Emotional Wellness
- Leadership + Civic Engagement
OHIP is a fantastic example of what happens when we authentically link community health resources with our resident's lived experiences. Together, we've been able to see what a multi-generational, caring, and collaborative community can do to live a happier, healthier life!
The Green Ring
The Green Ring is a way to share the news about how your neighbors are staying healthy. Listen to a fun telephone update with real life stories about how we're using better quality foods to help us get stay ahead of our health. The Green Ring is every 3rd Tuesday of the month and is delivered to a phone number of your choice.
O-HIP in MOTION
Our monthly e-newsletter provides important updates about health and wellness in our community. We share the results of how we're impacting healthy food access, mental health, neighborhood safety, physical activity, leadership and civic engagement.
Find out what's O-HIP in our social media channels. You'll find links to important articles, photos of you and your neighbors, event information, and it's a place for you to share your successes.
Be O-HIP at Events!
We are a community of 19,000 residents of many different ages and experiences. OHIP events are designed to create meaningful connections that inspire health, safety, sharing, and learning - together!
When you come to an OHIP event you are honoring our community values by practicing our tradition of supporting one another. It's that simple.
