Health Equity

THT strives to eliminate poverty and bias so everyone can be as healthy as possible.

Healthy Housing & Communities

Housing quality, safety and affordability impact health. THT works to improve living conditions in our city.

Maternal & Youth Health

Maternal and infant mortality in NJ is among the worst nationwide. THT leads a coalition promoting quality care and healthy choices from infancy to adulthood.

Adverse Childhood Experiences

THT is active in a citywide effort to prevent trauma and build resilience.

Healthy Food

Too many Trenton neighborhoods lack nutritious food options. THT helps families gain access to healthy food.

Quality Healthcare

THT was founded in 2006 to improve access to quality healthcare for city residents. THT partners with providers to create innovative and effective models of care.

Multi-sector Partnership

THT is a team of experts, advocates, community leaders and residents. THT engages stakeholders across the city to brainstorm and problem-solve.

Data Systems

THT analyzes and shares data to improve community well-being. We operate the Trenton Health Information Exchange and NowPow social service referral service.

We’re working toward health equity.

Health cannot improve without addressing community conditions, social justice, and bias. Equity is at the heart of our mission and drives our work on health care policy and practice.
