HNCP is focused on ongoing engagement and partnership with the communities we serve – not “one-shot” training sessions. We are not “outside consultants”, but active partners with an aim to develop and support local community change leaders.
When it comes to bringing people together to realize their vision of health and wellness, investing in communities to generate change works, We know that people in local communities have the passion, tradition and commitment needed to take the first and most powerful steps toward wellness. With a strong network and tools, community groups and organizations can mobilize powerful practices that are right for their communities. HNCP works with communities, organizations and groups to develop, implement and keep track of the health and wellness efforts in Native communities.
Together with a diversity of partners, HNCP creates and adapts community wellness strategies based on Native cultural teachings and community strengths. Traditional Native philosophy defines a healthy individual, family, or community as “balanced” – with appropriate attention being given to areas of life represented by the four cardinal directions. The foundation of our trainings are based on Native teachings of holistic wellness.
HNCP works with community teams to design processes that help them meet their goals. We offer customized training and technical assistance that include a variety of formats, including:
HNCP will tailor the content, format and structure of the session to best fit the needs of the group.
