NORTHWEST HEALTH FOUNDATION FORMS FIVE-YEAR PARTNERSHIPS WITH
COMMUNITIES TO BUILD POWER FOR BETTER CHILDHOODS
PORTLAND, Ore.— Northwest Health Foundation (NWHF) has awarded $850,000 in first year grant funds to 10 Community Collaboratives in Oregon and SW Washington. The Collaboratives will work with each other and NWHF for the next five years to advance a shared agenda for healthier childhoods. 2016 is the first year of Communities Collaborate, a part of NWHF’s Healthy Beginnings+Healthy Communities Initiative (HB+HC). HB+HC will help communities build power for better childhoods by 2020. “Communities need a seat at the decision-making table,” said Nichole June Maher, president of Northwest Health Foundation. “From local school boards to the state legislature, parents and families should have a voice. When communities are able to invest in developing leadership and advocacy skills, they can make a bigger and more enduring impact on health.” The Collaboratives selected for HB+HC Communities Collaborate partnerships will work together to be a part of a local and regional transformation of institutions, programs and policies to deliver better outcomes in early life, equity and community health. More information about HB+HC and the Collaboratives listed below can be found at www.northwesthealth.org/hbhc/about.
A healthy childhood sets the stage for lifelong health. But no child raises themself. Families and communities play a critical role in setting a child up for success. That’s why they’re best suited to lead the way to better health. Northwest Health Foundation knows that when families and communities work together to get there, Oregon and SW Washington will be healthier. We have seen individual communities make big improvements for their kids’ health. We’re ready to see it happen for our whole region. Healthy Beginnings+Healthy Communities uses three approaches to improve childhoods: we will bring communities together to support each other in creating broad and lasting change; we will scale successful programs for the benefit of our region; and we will equip communities to advocate effectively.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
