Thank you all for a great fiscal year! We have officially concluded our Fall 2017 to Spring 2018 training year, and we are so grateful for your continued support and attendance to all of our trainings.

Stay tuned for our fall calendar! In the meantime, as we reflect on our year and goals for next year, we encourage you all to reflect on your organization or coalition: what have you accomplished this year? What do you hope to accomplish next year? While you're at it, please add or update your coalitions information to our coalition finder

We look forward to seeing you all at our trainings this fall. Thanks to generous funding from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, our trainings are always free. 
Call to Action: Add Your Coalition!

Massachusetts  Coalition Finder 

The Coalition Finder was  created in  June 2015 as a joint initiative between The Community Health Training Institute and the MA Department of Public Health to better serve coalitions across the state. 

We are working to build a network of MA coalitions to increase access to resources, training, and peer-to-peer support. It is the only searchable database of coalitions in the state, and the more people we engage in it, the better our database becomes. This roster is not a definitive list;  its accuracy is determined by coalitions' efforts to verify, add, and update their own organizational profiles.

Please add, update, or verify your coalition here.

Summer 2018  

This guide from Living Cities has been designed to support facilitators and leaders to advance cross-sector conversations and efforts aimed at population-level impact. How might facilitators effectively use data? How might they ensure a racial equity focus? Often these conversations stall for various reasons including the historical and prevailing culture of both funders and grantees that has focused on compliance rather than continuous improvement.




Contact us for more information about opportunities to grow through training and resources, or if you'd like to submit a resource or event for inclusion in the next update.
