News & Announcements

To achieve the vision of making Lincoln the healthiest community in the nation, the Board of Trustees of the Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) has established new funding priorities.

The Place Matters mapping project has consistently informed CHE’s work and funding decisions since 2015. CHE funding will focus on 3 community issues that have been consistently identified by Place Matters. Additionally, CHE funding will address mental wellness and human connection as impacted by the COVID pandemic.

Join us on Friday, April 22, 2022 from 12-1pm for a virtual community conversation to learn about the inequities and disparities in youth sports.

Participation in youth sports can have a lifelong positive influence on physical and mental health, lifestyle behaviors, and community networking. Unfortunately existing inequities and barriers, such as finances, available facilities, and lack of support, make sports participation inaccessible to some youth in our community.

We will explore new community data regarding disparities in aerobic fitness and youth sports participation, and hear from youth sports experts about how we can work toward making youth sports more equitable and beneficial for all. 

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird declared November 15-19 as the official week to honor those heroes. As a way to say thank you, the Community Health Endowment is joining other organizations in Lincoln to cheer on hospital heroes who are starting or ending their work shift.
