Kitsap Community Health Priorities
5210 Kitsap is a countywide initiative to increase physical activity and healthy eating to reduce obesity in Kitsap County. Throughout Kitsap County, people are hearing about 5210 in work, school, healthcare, childcare, and community settings. The 5210 behaviors are based on science and recommended by the medical community to promote good health. Be healthy every day and strive for: 5 fruits and vegetables a day, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour of physical activity and 0 sugary drinks.

The Affordable Housing workgroup along with mental health and public service providers was awarded funding from Kitsap County Mental Health, Chemical Dependency & Therapeutic Court programs to support a crisis response and care coordination project named Kitsap Connects which will provide intensive support services to our most vulnerable residents.

Kitsap Connect is a new collective impact project which is founded on principles of harm reduction and trauma informed care. The focus is to help some of the most vulnerable residents of Bremerton and Central Kitsap who are experiencing (or are at risk of) mental illness, chemical dependency, physical illnesses, and homelessness by improving access to the care they need. Employees from Kitsap Public Health District, Kitsap Community Resources and Kitsap Mental Health Services staff Kitsap Connect which is housed at Salvation Army in Bremerton. For more information contact Kelsey Stedman.
Kitsap Strong – our community's collective impact project to address ACEs: Kitsap Strong Leadership Committee has developed a theory of change to guide strategic decision making and community change efforts. Kitsap Strong is developing promotional materials and a website to build public awareness of our efforts. The final Collaborative Learning Academy (CLA) meeting for the 26 non-profits we are funding to learn about ACEs will occur this month. If you would like to become involved in Kitsap Strong, please contact Kody Russell.
The need for "respite beds" or "recuperative beds" for medically vulnerable people experiencing homelessness in Kitsap has been identified by the KCHP Affordable Housing workgroup as a key priority and supported in the 2016 Kitsap Homeless Housing Plan.
