Civic Health

The Civic Health Services of Codman Square Health Center are embodied in the MyDorchester program. This civic partnership between Social Capital Inc. and Codman Square Health Center has the goal of strengthening communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives.

Our vision is to develop a community where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities. This increase in social capital will result in communities that are safer, healthier, and more vital. A signature feature of the SCI activities is the well-developed interactive community social media sites of MyDorchester on Facebook and Twitter, as well as the MyDorchester eBlast, a weekly electronic newsletter announcing community events, programs and opportunities.

MyDorchester focuses on these priority areas:

  • Connecting Citizens: Connect community members with information about and resources in their neighborhood.
  • Leveraging Volunteers: Recruit and coordinate volunteers for community events and activities.
  • Building Bridges: Build social capital and increase civic engagement among adults, youth, and the community.
