MCOHA: Vision for a Healthier Community Involving All Community Partners!

MCOHA consistently seeks collaborations with individuals, companies, and organizations to support the area’s residents, address the health needs of the community, and to assist in the delivery of a more comprehensive set of social and human services.

MCOHA continues working closely with faith-based communities in Morris County to empower their members to make positive, long-lasting health-promoting changes.  Working in partnership with Atlantic Health System, we have been able to affect positively the health of the area’s residents through the Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More Program, which improve the family’s healthy life choices and help end the cycle of obesity in the family unit.

MCOHA is also grateful for Univision’s visit on September 19th.  Univision, the area’s premier Spanish-language TV station and the leading media company serving Hispanic America, visited MCOHA and had the opportunity to see firsthand the difference that MCHOA’s programs and services make in the lives of the most vulnerable members of our communities. The interview broadcasted on the 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm news can be seen by visiting the following link https://www.univision.com/nueva-york/wxtv/noticias/servicios-sociales/una-organizacion-presta-ayuda-en-temas-migratorios-y-en-asistencia-durante-el-invierno-video. 

There is much promise yet to be fulfilled at MCOHA and we appreciate the support of all our community partners in helping us to create better and healthier communities for all who seek our help. For more information about MCOHA services, please call (973) 366-4770 or visit www.mcoha.org.
