Our Services

For the better part of 20 years, CommonHealth ACTION has worked with philanthropy, non-profits, businesses, governments, and community-based coalitions across the country to support their growth and development. As we design each engagement, our team applies evidence-based and experience-informed practices from our fields of expertise. Through our services, we support organizations as they seek to achieve their missions, which in turn helps us achieve ours.

Our World View

Your health is not an accident; it is a production of society.

Our vision is an America in which all people have equitable opportunities and neighborhood conditions to achieve their best possible health.

That means that no matter what we do in the world, it has an impact on our health and the health of people around us. ALL roads lead to health.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.

Edith Wharton

Relationships are primary. All else is derivative.

Dr. Ronald David

Vision without action is merely a dream.
Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.

Joel A. Barker

Do more than belong: PARTICIPATE. Do more than care: HELP.
Do more than believe: PRACTICE. Do more than be fair: BE KIND.
Do more than forgive: FORGET. Do more than dream: WORK.

William Arthur Ward

The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
