connect. honor. advance. grow.Community Hero Action Group is working hard at closing the health and wealth disparity gaps in the Black community across Pennsylvania. VOLUNTEER
“Our mission is to empower the African American community by increasing access to trustworthy health and financial education, resources, and services, to promote equitable health and wealth outcomes.”
We connect with organizations & individuals to explore fresh alliances that extend community impact.
We honor the Black experience by listening to and finding inspiration in stories.
We advance an individual’s power by engaging with them through education and programs.
We grow our community’s capacity to transcend disparities in health and wealth.
what we care about
Blacks die from every chronic disease at a higher rate than any other ethnic group.
For every dollar the median white household has, the median Black household has 10 cents.
Blacks votes when they believe interests are being met, and don’t vote as a protest to inequalities embedded in the political process.
innovation to transformation
With strategic, innovative, transformational programs, we engage all generations to provide an educational experience that leaves community members informed, empowered, and motivated.
poverty is bad for your health
Poverty is bad for health. People living in poverty are more likely to struggle to afford nutritious food, lack access to health care, or be overworked or stressed. 1
An increase in wealth will definitely provide the Black community with the transformational change necessary to create a sustainable, higher quality of life.
Blacks have historically been denied access to higher-paying jobs, quality education (for the skill set needed for those jobs), which means they are more likely to be adversely affected by social determinants of health and lifestyle that prevent them from achieving a higher quality of life.
