The Women’s Health Coalition in Macon is a group that is working to help alleviate the health inequities women face in Macon. They used data from the Macon County Health Department’s Community Needs Assessment and Samaritan Hospital’s Community Needs Assessment to learn more about what concerns and issues our community was facing to help create a strategy of overcoming these barriers that influence health.
One of the top concerns seen by the coalition was a lack of an updated resource guide; a place where community members could find phone numbers, locations, and service information for area businesses, agencies, and service providers for our county.
We have broken down the resource guide into various sections:
- Housing & Shelter
- Community Services
- Emergency services & city offices
- Faith based organizations
- Food & Services
