Randolph's Community Wellness Plan is an action plan for improving public health in Randolph, based on data and community feedback. A coalition of partners including residents, municipal staff, faith leaders, health care and mental health providers are working toward the goals outlined in the plan. They include:
- Housing: The mix of housing types meets the needs of Randolph residents, and residents live in homes that are safe, affordable and healthy.
- Health Care and Public Health: Randolph residents have access to affordable, accessible, and culturally competent preventive care and medical treatment.
- Transportation: Randolph's transportation network provides residents with safe, multi-modal, and regionally coordinated options that promote health, particularly for those with mobility and income constraints, youth and seniors.
- Community: Randolph is a safe and welcoming town that celebrates its unique diversity, encourages civic participation, and connects neighbors.
- Parks, Open Space, and Recreation: Randolph residents have access to well-maintained, safe parks that promote recreation and are located near their homes.
- Food: Residents have access to enough convenient, affordable, healthy, and culturally preferred food options at stores, in school, and through food assistance programs.
- Schools: Randolph Public Schools promote student and staff health and engagement.
The Randolph Community Wellness Plan explicitly seeks to meet the needs of those most impacted by chronic disease and poor health outcomes: immigrants, youth, and older adults. These groups will act as advisors to help guide solutions that promote health equity.
Backbone Partners provide overall coordination and administration. They meet regularly to lead and shape the Community Wellness Plan.
