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. 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 opportunities for all.

United Way's health goal is to enable indviduals and families to improve their health. This requires increasing access to health care and health insurance but also creating healthy communities, increasing physical activity and access to healthy food,and ensuring that children and families get off to a healthy start.

Building blocks to good health are:

  • Access to health care: increasing the number of evidenced-based programs in the community
  • Healthy beginnings: increasing acess to prenatal care, providing education to parents and children, and removing barriers to care
  • Healthy eating and physical activity: making physical activity accessible and fun, promoting healthy eating and making nutritious food available in schools workplaces, and neighborhoods
