Systems for Action, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, awarded FAAITH, a new Trenton-based NGO, Tufts Medical Center, and the Shiloh Community Development Corporation a one-year planning grant to expand a congregationally-based, faith-infused home visiting program to address racial disparities and inequities. The project, FAAITH (Faith-leaders Allied and Aligned to Institute Trust in the Home) and HOPE (Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences) for equitable systems alignment, will support the Shiloh Pastor and FAAITH Founder, Rev. Darrell Armstrong’s, efforts to include the research-based HOPE framework into his ministries.
We are excited to partner with the Henry J. Austin Health Center, City of Trenton, Central Jersey Family Health Consortium, Capitol County Children’s Collaboration, Prevent Child Abuse New Jersey, Capital Health System, and the Robert Wood Johnson/Barnabas Health Hospital System are joining this project to move the community forward towards health equity. Shiloh, Trenton’s oldest Black Baptist house of worship (founded in 1880), and all of our partners are excited to support the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s goals of reducing health disparities among Black New Jerseyans and of creating an overall Culture of Health in the Garden State.
