Codman Square Health Council


Who We Are

We are residents and organizations brought together by the Codman Square Neighborhood Council working together to improve the health of the community.  We connect organizations to work better together and effectively connect to residents.  Focusing on empowerment, our goal is to empower the neighborhood to take action in improving the health of the community through education, action and policy.


In 2007, residents were outraged by the health statistics of Codman Square / Dorchester in comparison to the rest of the city and state.  while focusing on the overall health of the neighborhood, current priorities include addressing nutrition, fitness, substance abuse, and violence as health concerns.  Strategies range from organizing the Codman Square Farmers Market, and increasing employment opportunities for youth to developing effective walk groups and providing education and resources on the health of the community.
