NHS of Staten Island provides programming that engages communities in Staten Island, for Social, Economic and Environmental transformation, development and resilience.
Social Development and Impact
Building social capital and equity refers to the norms and networks that enable people to act collectively for a better and more resilient community. NHS of Staten Island engages these networks by promoting Resident Leadership and increasing communities’ ladder of participation to be better positioned to assist in creating and maintaining clean, safe, healthy, livable, resilient and sustainable communities.
NHS of Staten Island’s efforts to create and maintain sustainable communities promote an Economic Development approach that engages a broad-based partnership of community, private, public and Third sector institutions for sustained concerted actions that promote the standard of living, economic mobility of residents and the community’s economic health. NHS of Staten Island provides several core programs that work toward this goal.
Environmental development is NHS’ community action programming that promotes a mode of living in which resource use aims to meet human needs while ensuring the sustainability of natural systems and the environment, so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come.
