Health in Common News

Goodbye, Krista


We may have welcomed a new member to our team last month, but this month we are saying farewell to Krista. The mom-to-be will be exchanging literature reviews and report writing for sleepless nights and diaper duty (woohoo!).

Krista, thank you for all your hard work and for the enthusiasm you brought to HiC. We have enjoyed having you around the office and appreciate all that you have taught us in your short time here. Best wishes on this next endeavor!


Pro Bono Services

As applications from our first round of pro bono services are being reviewed, we have put out a second call for June!

HiC Pro Bono - June Facebook FINAL

Not-for-profits have a positive impact in our communities.

In an effort to further strengthen the not-for-profit sector, Health in Common is providing pro bono planning and evaluation services. Pro bono services can include facilitating stakeholder engagement, developing a strategic plan or evaluating an initiative.

Health in Common is a not-for-profit organization that provides planning and evaluation services on a fee-for-service basis. Grounded in years of community based experience, Health in Common’s knowledge and skills provide a practical, capacity building approach to planning and evaluation.

Does your work help create healthy communities?
Are you working within and across sectors to strengthen impact?
Does your work address community-identified issues?
If the answer is yes to one or more of these questions,
you may be eligible for free services.
For more information please visit our Pro Bono Planning and Evaluation Services page.

2016 Summer Institute

We hope to see you there this year!
