PRCHN Toolkits
PRCHN toolkits document best practices and lessons learned from the Center's community-based participatory research to help other organizations, neighborhoods, and practitioners implement community health initiatives and programs.

This resource guide provides steps and guidelines to help anyone prepare and organize opportunities for shared use sites within their community. Spearheaded by the PRCHN, this guide is based off of the HIP-Cuyahoga Shared Use Initiative and provides action steps, implementation methods, and suggestions for shared use through a community-focused lens.
This resource guide combines strategies, experiences, and lessons learned while providing available resources and helpful tools when working with owners of corner stores to increase their selection of healthy foods and engaging residents in the process. The PRCHN Healthy Food Retail Implementation Guide provides resources around planning, implementation and sustainability, while also giving examples our own personal experiences during the Good Food Here initiative in Cleveland.
This toolkit brings together all of the documents used to conduct a social network-based health intervention. It is made available as a model for other studies that combine qualitative and social network data to inform public health interventions.
Shared use is a unique tool that public and private property owners can use to fill a need in their community for recreational facilities and increase opportunities for physical activity and programming. This resource guide will assist shared use policy holders and their partners with the tools to create a promotions plan, guidance on strategies and best practices for promoting their space to physical activity providers and community members, as well as examples from our own efforts here in Cleveland. This guide is a joint project with the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.
This Resource Guide breaks down the elements of a strong shared use agreement and provides information about how to overcome potential roadblocks and mishaps. Although there is no single method for developing an agreement, this guide provides definitions, checklists, templates and suggestions. Use it to help everyone involved agree on who will be responsible (for costs, staffing, maintenance, and so on), and how it will be paid for.
Use This Guide as a tool to: learn how to purchase and carry fresh produce in your store; select other healthy food items; use the store materials provided to market healthy selections; and promote your new healthy food offerings and store.
