SHIP has supported St. James with concrete, sustainable ways to make our community healthier, plus the financial and technical support from SHIP has been invaluable.

SHIP’s work across the region has been amazing – such as working with businesses to develop wellness efforts with time-off incentives; lunch and learn sessions dealing with tobacco cessation; and working with farmers markets and grocery stores in providing recipes in various languages to encourage the purchase of locally grown foods. It is wonderful to see communities working together for the greater good.
