Across the country, foundations have developed shared facilities that bring people together to address the pressing health needs of their communities. In some areas, these centers co-locate nonprofit, private, and public health providers for comprehensive, one-stop care. In other areas, foundations have created public convening spaces and capacity-building programs to develop new community leaders and work toward policy change. This webinar discussed different models for using foundation facilities to support healthy communities, best practices (and mistakes to avoid) in creating mission-enhancing shared spaces, and tools for successfully developing buildings that meet the specific health needs of particular communities.
