Minority Health Month Initiatives
Through a grant from the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, OCHLA conducts health care awareness initiatives/workshops to decrease health disparities and increase access and quality of health services for Hispanic Ohioans. The Organizations Development Center collaborates with organizations across the state of Ohio in order to provide informative presentations and materials on various health-related topics to community leaders, non-profit organizations, and constituents who are interested in harnessing useful tools and bilingual resources for their communities.
The purpose of Agenda Latina is to strengthen the connections between the Latino community leadership and organizations with the state of Ohio. This an event specifically designed to help build capacity for the Latino Serving Organizations of Ohio by offering information on topics such as philanthropy, effective governance, preservation of culture, fundraising, etc. OCHLA's aim is to help improve communication within organizations, foster collaboration between entities, establish coordination, examine and emulate best practices, and to develop a statewide community agenda on specific subject matters. The Organizations Development Center works to procure experts in non-profit instruction in order to provide these organizations with tools and resources to help them become more sustainable and effective within their communities.
Social Enterprise Webinar & Workshop
The goal of OCHLA’s Social Enterprise Initiative was to conduct a live webinar and workshop that concentrated on the growing Hispanic organizations in Ohio that want to explore possibilities with new funding streams and financial independence. OCHLA invited the Center for Social Enterprise and Development (CSED) to assist in conducting this webinar and workshop. CSED believes that incorporating commercial strategies and activities, such as strategically selling goods and services, embracing a fee-for-service approach, or founding a separate commercial for-profit enterprise or hybrid business, may provide new types of revenue streams that will sustain successful nonprofits in the future.
