Community Leadership Development

CFJC’s Community Leadership Development (CLD) program grew out of our successful Mothers Taking Action (MTA) pilot project. MTA was comprised of food stamp-eligible mothers committed to improving the health of their families and communities. CFJC trained MTA Peer Leaders to facilitate small group dialogue sessions and maintain a safe and comfortable environment. Among other outcomes, the trainings and networking resulted in mothers organizing walking clubs, working with fellow residents to start a community garden, and the development of a team of community leaders committed to taking action to improve health in their local neighborhoods.

CFJC also provided trainings and technical assistance to Local Health Departments and their partners across California. Our focus is on authentically engaging with communities as partners to achieve better health outcomes.  CFJC believes that we are being successful when the wealth of community is measured by the health of its people.
