Place Matters A Message from CHE Leadership In the year 1510, the phrase “Hic Sunt Dracones” appeared on one of the first European globes. Translated to “Here Be Dragons,” the phrase meant dangerous or unexplored territories. In short, it provided a warning to travelers that ‘we don’t know what’s out there.’ Throughout history, maps have helped us define, explain and navigate our way to a desired destination. Advancing beyond the question of mythical creatures inhabiting the earth, today’s sophisticated mapping technologies educate us about how our location in the world – even our very street address – influences and impacts us. The acclaimed PBS series Unnatural Causes had a clear message: “place matters” when it comes to health. The series stressed that “Health is more than health care.” It is “…the jobs we do, the money we’re paid, the schools we attend, the neighborhoods

we live in (that are) as important to our health as our genes, behaviors and even medical care.” In 2014, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America issued “Time to Act: Investing in the Health of Our Children and

Communities,” a landmark report emphasizing the connection between community development and health. Inspired by these two notable organizations and with the strong belief that “place matters,” the Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) undertook a mapping

project to better understand the role of place in health status and behaviors in our own community. In collaboration with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, the City of Lincoln Urban Development Department and NeighborWorksŽ Lincoln, we gathered information on demographic, socioeconomic and health indicators at the census tract level. We filled our walls with a gallery of geographic impressions of our community and spent hours interpreting their meaning and messages. Each map provided us with new insight and understanding of the community we call home. CHE used this information to create new funding priorities which you will find on page 10. We believe that the better we understand Lincoln, the more effectively we can target our resources to effect change and improve the health of our community. We also believe this project can better equip policymakers, health and human service providers, funders, educators, corporate partners and others to translate data into action. You will see some maps in this report. You will find more at www.chelincoln.org. Use these visual representations of our community to learn more about Lincoln and become acquainted with your city in a new way. There are no dragons, only opportunities to navigate our way to a healthier community – a healthier and more prosperous place to live, work and play for all our residents wherever they live. Because place does matter. This place matters.

Bellwether Crimes Although crime in Lincoln is at its lowest level since 1970, disparities exist across Lincoln. This map shows how cases of child abuse/neglect, domestic violence, protection orders and residential burglary are concentrated across the city (2014). These “bellwether crimes� are often symptomatic of more complex issues related to economic and neighborhood distress.

Annual Report to the Community 2014-2015


Lincoln is a vibrant community with many strengths and assets. Yet, we know that health disparities and inequality exist here. CHE undertook this community mapping project to better understand the role of “place” in a person’s health and wellbeing. This information, whether expected or startling, has highly influenced CHE’s

new funding priorities. For many years, CHE has been part of creating a successful health care safety net in Lincoln. Based on the information we learned during the Place Matters mapping project, CHE believes the hope of an even healthier community lies in “health beyond health care” and used that insight to develop the following:

2015-2016 Funding Priorities and Preferences Priorities > Innovative practices that result in health care and behavioral health providers taking an active role in helping patients stay healthy outside a clinical setting, including nontraditional collaborations between health care, behavioral health and social/human services;

Preferences Within these priorities, CHE encourages applicants to: > Consider the relationship of poverty to the issue being addressed and how poverty influences both the cause of, and the solution to, the identified issue. > Utilize, whenever possible, locallybased geographic data to identify target groups and/or high-risk areas or neighborhoods.

> Investments in early childhood that have the greatest potential to reduce health disparities over the lifespan, with a specific focus on: •

a dverse childhood experiences and toxic stress;

childhood obesity; and/or

improved maternal health, and healthy birth and early childhood outcomes;

> Utilize, whenever possible, evidencebased data or research to identify target groups, high-risk populations, and/or program delivery models. More information about CHE grant making is available at www.chelincoln.org. If you have specific questions about the mapping project, contact CHE

> Intentional linkages between housing, health, neighborhood organizations, financial institutions and economic development; and

at info@chelincoln.org or (402) 435-5516.

> Prevention-focused efforts that foster healthy behaviors and lead to improved health outcomes. C o m m u n i t y H e a lt h E n d o w m e n t o f L i n c o l n
