Partnerships are at the
heart of PIHC’s work.

By focusing on partnerships, we work to get access, resources, power and the locus of control as close to the community as possible. Below, you’ll find a few examples of the ways we partner with community organizations to create happier, healthier communities. 

Community Coalition of Stanwood-Camano

PIHC Custom Communities

Community Coalition of Stanwood-Camano is a collaboration of community-minded organizations that began working together in January 2017 to identify and address unmet needs within the Stanwood-Camano community. They work together to identify needs, develop strategies, and implement programs that address the unique challenges faced by the Stanwood-Camano community.

In 2019, the Communtity Coalition partnered with PIHC to create a hyper-local online resource hub built using Custom Communities. Custom Communities are built on the existing resource hub platform, but are customized for a specific community or topic.

Improving School Attendance

PIHC My Community Health and Well-being Monitor

Improving School Attendance (ISA) is a collaboration between more than 20 nonprofits aimed at figuring out why students miss school and how to get them back in the classroom. Students miss school for many reasons, from their parents’ work schedules to lack of transportation to homelessness. 

ISA uses PIHC’s My Community Health and Well-being Monitor to track the needs and changes in the lives of the families they work with. The My Community Health and Well-being Monitor is a survey designed to address all six dimensions of health, helping ISA to uncover needs or barriers to school attendance that might not be immediately apparent and create customized action plans for participants. Because the Health and Well-being Monitor is conducted annually in Snohomish County, ISA can track the way participant’s well-being differs from the county as a whole, and quickly identify the areas that might be easiest to address.

The Monitor also allows ISA track families progress in the program, helping them ISA to discover that families who participated in the program for about 2 years saw a 44% drop in food insecurity and a significant improvement to transportation access. Learn more about ISA here.

The Equity Partnership of Snohomish County

PIHC Custom Communities

The Equity Partnership of Snohomish County was formed during the Covid-19 pandemic to improve equitable access to Covid-19 vaccines and related services. During the pandemic, the Equity Partnership helped connect BIPOC communities with culturally-appropriate vaccine resources, including translation services, transportation and local community clinics. 

To help facilitate their work, the Equity Partnership of Snohomish County created a custom community. Custom Communities are digital resource hubs that are built on the existing platform, but are customized for a specific community or topic. By using a custom community, the Equity Partnership was able to quickly create a hub for vaccine resources designed specifically for the communities they serve. The hub helped BIPOC communities to easily access culturally-appropriate Covid-19 vaccine resources.

Partnerships in Community Events and Outreach
