Land acknowledgement

Together, we acknowledge, with humility, the indigenous peoples whose presence permeates the waterways, shorelines, valleys, and mountains of the Olympic region. The land where we are is the territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, in particular the Chimacum, Hoh, Makah, S’Klallam, Suquamish, and Quileute tribes on whose sacred land we live, work, and play.

Olympic Community of Health (OCH) seeks to meaningfully engage organizations and Tribes across the Olympic region to work toward the goal of “Improve individual and population health and advance equity by addressing determinants of health”. There is room for everyone in this important work, whether you're a health provider, civic institution, or another community-based organization.

The OCH Board of Directors has allocated up to $2,000,000 to support projects addressing the following goals:​

  • Address and reduce stigma of those community members with a substance use disorder through community-wide education, youth engagement, and through policy and systems change.  

  • Increase the availability of long-term and safe transitional and respite housing options for people throughout their recovery journey.  

  • Embed substance use disorder (SUD) services in mobile units and jail programs including connecting people to respite and transitional housing.  

  • Partner with hospitals to ensure access to appropriate respite, supportive, transitional, or long-term housing for those transitioning out of care.  

  • Identify and implement creative workforce approaches to address the health-serving workforce crisis.  

  • Partner with schools and colleges to create pathways to address local workforce shortages.
