2021 Child & Family Community Champions of the Year: The Newport County Community Healthcare Collaborative (NCCHC)

Jennifer & Marty

Child & Family would like to thank and congratulate The Newport County Community Healthcare Collaborative (NCCHC) who received our 2021 Child & Family Community Champions of the Year award. The NCCHC was formed in October of 2020 by ten local organizations to support this community’s at-risk, low-income individuals and families of color. The mission of the Collaborative has been to enhance COVID prevention while increasing testing and vaccination rates. The Collaborative has been largely successful in all these areas and has grown as a community support system in areas that affect health and human service organizations such as the current workforce crisis.

Accepting on behalf of the Collaborative is Jennifer Fairbank, RN, BSN, CHNA, CEO, with Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice along with Marty Sinnott, President & CEO, Child & Family.

Thank you to all our partners for your ongoing support of the Rhode Islanders we serve; Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice, East Bay Community Action Program, Newport Health Equity Zone, Newport Hospital, Newport Mental Health, Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce, and the Rhode Island Department of Health.
