Trenton Health Team: A Holistic Approach to Social Services

Example from the Field

The Trenton Health Team (THT) is an innovative, multi-sector partnership dedicated to the health and well-being of the greater New Jersey Trenton community. THT, along with community healthcare system partners, understand that health and well-being are inextricably linked to housing quality, food security, neighborhood safety, education, and nurturing environments – “upstream” health factors with long-term – “downstream” – influence. To realize our Vision for a Healthy Trenton, THT must embrace a broader view of health and well-being in the community and consider how THT can work, along with partners, to advance that objective. Their recent report from the field details this work.
