Camp Hill welcomed the Equitable Neighborhoods Initiative (ENI) on December 03, 2022. The community of 1,264 residents in Tallapoosa County is one of fifteen across the state participating in ENI. The program will equip neighbors and community partners to address the pandemic-related issues of today while building capacity to deal with the health and quality of life challenges of tomorrow.
The Camp Hill Municipal Complex hosted the lively ENI kickoff celebration. Several local leaders, citizens, and ENI representatives gathered for the event. The kickoff featured welcome remarks, a motivational message, and refreshments.
“I hope that my community and I will be able to recognize issues and things that need to change in our neighborhood and collaborate to make those changes. Moreover, I am eager to hear the ideas of our youth and give them the chance to be heard and involved in their community! When ENI is ready to depart Camp Hill, I hope that we will all be a little bit happier and healthier—not just physically, but mentally as well,” said Camp Hill Community Liaison, Bianca Moss.
Camp Hill residents will join ENI’s Camp Hill Advisory Group and Youth Community Council. Together, the groups will work to improve health outcomes for their town. Among other projects, they will draft a health equity plan. They will also create a “healing zone” in the community. “Healing zones” are natural and recreation spaces for improving physical and mental health.
“The Camp Hill community and its residents are amazing, and we are excited to be working with them. We hope to assist in their commitment to the continued growth of the community and the betterment of their residents,” said ENI project leader Dr. Arturo Menefee.
Dr. Earl Suttle of Leadership Success International fired up Camp Hill residents in attendance. His motivational message encouraged Camp Hill residents to “master stress for better success.” His remarks aimed to empower residents to strengthen their physical and mental health.
