We are on a Mission

Where you live should not determine how long or how well you live. The Collaborative will mobilize resources to leverage health as a catalyst to ensure every Philadelphia family reaches its full potential.

Improving Lives in Philadelphia, from the Ground Up

By taking a grassroots approach to build trust, we are committed to empowering communities by investing in the right resources, infrastructure, and partnerships to reduce health disparities in and around Philadelphia.

Our mission has three main aspirations:


Raise Awareness

We will raise awareness about the social and structural barriers that exist throughout Philadelphia’s most underserved communities.


Increase Health Equity IQ

We will increase health equity IQ among Philadelphia’s leading philanthropists, corporations, community organizations, foundations, institutions, and health influencers.


Collaborate with Communities

We will develop resources that reflect the will of Philadelphia residents. In close partnership with our communities, we will design and implement resources they deem necessary to achieve a better quality of life in Philadelphia.

Together, we can create a healthier Philadelphia
