Critical Needs Access

Increase the capacity and connectedness of critical needs access programs

Alongside Growing Places and the United Way of North Central Mass, the Health Equity Partnership is leading initiatives to:

  • coordinate and optimize food transportation for the region's food pantries
  • improve food pantries' infrastructure and capacity to provide specialized services
  • advocate for the funding necessary to adequately meet the critical needs of a rural region
  • create an optimized volunteer coordination platform that matches the skills and availability of volunteers with the needs of community based organizations
