Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW), an initiative of the North Carolina Council of Churches, is designed to bridge issues of faith, health, and justice. This initiative seeks to provide people of faith with the tools necessary to lead healthy, abundant lives. We believe that “health” is defined by many factors that support holistic well-being. This belief is what inspired the development of the following focus areas: freedom from nicotine, healthy eating, increased physical activity, mental health advocacy and education, healthy aging, and harm reduction. By improving the health and well-being of people of faith, we hope to impact the larger community and ultimately empower faith communities to effect change as it relates to the many inequities in the healthcare system. Thanks to The Duke Endowment and Open Society Foundations for making this work possible!

PHW Collaborative member faith communities are mobilizing to meet important needs during COVID-19. We are inspired by these efforts and proud to share their stories as we navigate these times of uncertainty.
Re-imagining Health Ministries
We have compiled ideas for congregations to remain connected during COVID. We hope this list can offer ways to stay engaged with the PHW Collaborative and use PHW Mini-Grant funds.
