Beacon Community Impact works with multiple organizations in a collaborative health network. We use data-driven, evidence-based and transparent practices to chart progress and measure health impact as a result of the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
We are committed to strengthening the relationships within our community and embracing the diversity found there to help make Elkhart County, Marshall County and St Joseph County healthy places to live!
For over 25 years, Beacon Community Impact has been committed to improving the health and wellbeing of families and individuals in our community. We take pride in the work we do and strive to deliver quality resources.
Every year, Beacon Community Impact creates a report that details the combined impact created by our external partners and hard working internal program staff.
County Health Rankings showed that nearly 1/3 of the total adult population in the three counties assessed was obese.
Our Healthy Family Priority is firmly grounded in programing that reduces infant mortality and improves maternal/child health.
This priority encompasses a wide range of programming aimed at reducing substance misuse in alcohol, illicit drugs, prescription drugs and tobacco.
This priority takes a holistic approach to improving health by focusing on the areas of housing, safety, behavioral health, and food insecurity.
Creating community health is at the core of Beacon Health System’s mission. We believe promoting responsible, preventive health in our community is the right thing to do, and is key to long-term cost effectiveness. Improving the health of our region’s residents is as much social, economic and environmental as it is a medical issue.
