Healthy Neighborhoods Healthy Families & Ace Hardware

One of the most important predictors of overall health is your zip code.

  • The house you live in.
  • How safe your neighborhood is.
  • Availability of employment.
  • Educational opportunities.
  • Health care accessibility.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital, with our partners at Ace Hardware, recognize all these factors impact communities’ overall health. That’s why the Healthy Neighborhoods Healthy Families (HNHF) has been awarded a $10,000 gift from our friends at the Ace Hardware Foundation!

For the last 13 years, HNHF, composed of faith-based organizations, community development organizations, workforce development programs, youth-serving nonprofits and local public schools, seeks to create positive health outcomes in the community.

HNHF began on Columbus’ South Side, the area around Nationwide Children’s, and has proven it can improve community, family and individual wellbeing. The initiative has now expanded to the Linden area where it will supplement and expand upon the bold vision of the One Linden plan, developed by community leaders, thanks to the support of the Nationwide Innovation Fund.
