Foundation-Initiated Program Profiles

Child Health Initiative

With funding and leadership from the Williamsburg Health Foundation, James City County, City of Williamsburg, Child Development Resources, and Williamsburg-James City County Public School Division have formed Care Teams and partnered to create an integrated and multi-disciplinary, two-generation, home-based service delivery approach that works in partnership with families to improve well-being. Eligible families are residents who indicate readiness to improve their health and well-being and who have multiple risk factors that require the services of several agencies. Each locality-based team works with approximately 30 families to assess their health and well-being, identify their needs, prioritize their goals, and develop service plans to achieve better health outcomes for their children. The program entails frequent contact with families, coordinated home visits, regular team meetings, and careful progress monitoring.  This program uses a multi-generational approach to achieving better health outcomes.

The Chronic Care Collaborative

The Chronic Care Collaborative (CCC) was founded by WHF in 2007 to strengthen the care of chronic disease among the uninsured and under-insured in Greater Williamsburg. CCC members include Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic, Lackey Clinic, Olde Towne Medical and Dental Center, RxPartnership, and Virginia Health Care Foundation. Representatives from both Sentara and Riverside’s Williamsburg-based hospitals participate in meetings along with the Peninsula Health District of the Virginia Department of Health.  With shared quality metrics, the CCC has become a model of continuous quality improvement and patient-centered care.

School Health Initiative Program (SHIP)

SHIP is a partnership between the Williamsburg-James City County Public School Division, the Williamsburg Health Foundation, and a multitude of community partners committed to working together to create a healthier community. SHIP’s mission is to improve the health and wellness of WJCC students and staff by supporting and promoting healthy eating and active lifestyle habits in the schools, homes and the community.

SHIP’s vision of success is when:

  • there is a strong and sustainable culture of health and wellness for students and staff in every school
  • parents and community organizations are sustaining support for the mission and goals of SHIP
  • students and staff are achieving targets for health, wellness, and school engagement

For more information on SHIP, visit their website or Facebook page.
