All of our programs will prioritize grassroots, by and for organizations representing and responsive to BIPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, disability and rural low-income communities in our service area. This commitment is driven by the learnings embedded in EHF's Equity Healing Framework and EHF's 10-year Strategic Plan.
