What is a Health Creator?

A Health Creator helps improve their own health and the health of their community. They use their skills and strengths to make life better for themselves and others. By doing small and big things every day, Health Creators build strong connections with people, feel more confident, and take charge of their lives. They create a healthier environment at home, school, and work, making their community a better place for everyone.

We are an organization designed to change the narrative around who has the ability to support a healthy community and inspire and support hundreds of local community members to become health creators.

In doing so, it is our mission to help as many people in our communities build a sense of control, connection, and confidence ultimately leading to improved health and wellbeing.

Our Model

Our healthcare systems are overwhelmed and our healthcare providers are exhausted. Now more than ever we must challenge the paradigm that it is solely up to health professionals to “fix” us.
We believe that we must invest in the health creation potential of individuals and communities in order to grow more resilient and robust health ecosystems.

Our model focuses on Asset-Based Community Development, leveraging local strengths and fostering control, contact, and confidence to empower individuals and communities for better health and well-being.

The Three C's

Our model emphasizes the Three C's: Control, fostering self-sufficiency; Contact, encouraging meaningful connections; and Confidence, building self-assurance. These elements are crucial for creating empowered, resilient communities where individuals actively contribute to their health and well-being.

The Five Practices

Five key practices guide our approach: Listening and Responding, to understand and act on community needs; Truth-telling, to address root causes; Strengths Focus, to leverage individual and community assets; Self-organizing, to encourage local initiative and solutions; and Power-shifting, to empower communities to take control of their health outcomes.
