Integrating Health Education, Community, and Health Care

The Brandywine Health Foundation of Coatesville, Pennsylvania oversaw the development of facilities, programs, and a community engagement process to bring health education, community and health care together in the community. Activities included:

  • A new health and housing facility;
  • Community-based planning and service coordination; and
  • The Coatesville Youth Initiative’s working group, which developed the Summer ServiceCorps, an employment and youth leadership program for young people, ages 14 through 18, from primarily low-income backgrounds.

This case study highlights major outcomes and accomplishments, ingredients for success, key partners, and the populations served.
