The Commitment Phase is the first phase of the Inclusive Healthy Communities Change Model. This is where you will lay your foundation for community change. The other five phases will build upon what you do in this phase. Within this phase, you will develop (or enhance an existing) healthy communities coalition that will work towards making healthy choices the easy choices in areas where people live, learn, work, play, pray, or receive care. The main activities involved in this phase are leadership development and coalition/partner development.
