All people in McKinley County has the right to live in a safe, healthy, and prosperous environment that honors health-in-all policies and leaves a legacy of responsible leadership grounded in equity.
Mission Guided by community leaders we develop and mentor, through the collaborations we establish, we enact change by building capacity and empowering individuals, communities and organizations to lead on and impact equitable policy change.
Building Community Power
MCHE engages our community to take collective action through issue education by providing information and instruction regarding the process and procedure for working successfully within various public and policy change arenas. We then organize and mobilize our cohort of informed and equipped community members to take action and address the issues which will improve their lives.
