Let's Stay in Touch!

Social determinants—the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age—have a significant impact on health.

The City of Lakewood, the Healthy Lakewood Foundation, and the Three Arches Foundation have selected The Center for Community Solutions (Community Solutions) as a consultant to perform a Community-focused Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Action Plan for Lakewood, Ohio.

Over the next few months and running through 2022, this unique and community-based participatory effort will first focus on a holistic evaluation of our community’s strengths and weaknesses in relation to the social determinants of health, where Community Solutions will perform deep engagement with Lakewood’s diverse community to generate critical information and resident perspectives. Data gathered through direct outreach will be augmented with secondary health data from other sources.

When complete, both the assessment and Action Plan are intended to play a critical role in developing, implementing, and/or improving health-centered, equitable community programs and initiatives that serve all Lakewood residents.





When you talk about the health and well-being of a community, it’s important to understand the constantly changing social and economic factors that impact an individual’s health status and access to health services and support..
