Best Communities for Young People Served by Catholic Health Initiatives

Several communities served by Catholic Health Initiatives and Mission and Ministry Fund grants are on the 2007 list of the 100 Best Communities for Young People compiled by the America’s Promise Alliance. The list showcases communities across the U.S. that demonstrate innovative efforts to provide young people with the “five promises” they need to succeed: caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, an effective education and opportunities to help others. The 100 Best Communities for Young People served by Catholic Health Initiatives’ market-based organizations and community health service organizations include Little Rock, Ark.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Nampa, Idaho; Lexington and Louisville, Ky.; and Lakewood, Wash.
