Health and Wellness

Focus: Health and Wellness

Good health is an essential ingredient for individual success and a thriving community. Healthy kids are more likely to succeed in school. Healthy adults are more likely to remain self sufficient when they can go to work. The whole community will flourish when all of our residents have access to public parks, playgrounds, healthy foods and quality healthcare. We are committed to more than short-term charity for a few; we are committed to lasting solutions that build opportunity for all.

United Way funds programs, especially for low-income individuals and families, that promote healthy behaviors and activities, and creates a community that promotes good health for everybody. Everybody needs:

  • Access to health care
  • Healthy beginnings
  • Healthy eating and physical activity

Kids need to keep busy through the summer. They need to be involved in programs that allow them to grow and develop into physically, emotionally and intellectually strong individuals. Check out these programs that offer quality, supervised programs while school is out.
