About the Resilient Community Project
Equity in creating safe, healthy, and resilient communities.
BUILDING RESILIENT COMMUNITIES
The American Red Cross Resilient Community Project aims to help bridge racial, ethnic, and minority disparities in health status, home safety, and quality of life for families in local at-risk neighborhoods. Bringing together various organizations and agencies with a like-minded focus to bridge these gaps, the Resilient Community Project is hosting a series of community events in these Greater Cincinnati Tri-State communities. Families can participate in fun and educational activities, while taking part in onsite opportunities for life-saving trainings, diverse blood supply education, and physical and behavioral health screenings.
Arm people with the skills, preparedness education, and confidence to save lives.
Diverse Blood Supply
Educate on benefits of donating blood for personal health and the community’s–a diverse blood supply, helps in the fight against cancer and finding a compatible match for someone with sickle cell disease.
Disaster Response Volunteers
Recruit volunteers from the community who speak the same primary language and reflect the diverse families we are helping to aid in a disaster.
Disparities in Health
Provide access to physical and behavioral health screenings, in partnership with local healthcare organizations - lack of early diagnosis and basic healthcare access is a leading contributor to high mortality rates for minority groups and the biggest reason for inequality in their life expectancy.
Create positive experiences which inspire new conversations and provide a platform for learning the needs of the community and how we can support its’ growth.
