MAPP thanks community partners

Many thanks to SVT Health & Wellness and to Best Beginnings Homer for their recent financial contributions to MAPP of the Southern Kenai Peninsula (SKP), our local partnership for improving community health.

It is through this direct support, in addition to many other in-kind contributions and support from partners that enables MAPP to function.

The primary purpose of MAPP of the SKP is to improve our communitys health (broadly defined) and quality of life by providing a process by which community partners can come together to strategically and collectively address our communitys priority health needs.

MAPP is presently conducting its second Community Health Needs Assessment and will be reaching out to community members this November-December to provide input on our communitys strengths and needs.

From here we will be better able to prioritize the issues we want to work on together for the next few years.

So, thanks again to SVT Health & Wellness and Best Beginnings Homer for supporting this community vehicle for positive change it takes all of us to play a part.

No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. H.E. Luccock
