Health

Helping adults and children in our community thrive by being healthy and active.

Good health is both a community responsibility and a community benefit. It goes beyond personal diet, exercise, and the many other individual choices we make. The foundation for a healthy life is in the neighborhoods we build and the environments we inhabit. When people have access to parks, bike paths, safe playgrounds, healthy foods, and good medical care, they are more likely to succeed in school, work, and life.

United Way is creating solutions that help everyone thrive, creating healthier communities that improve our collective quality of life. We’re focused on expanding access to healthy foods, opportunities for physical activity, and quality health care. To do this, we partner with local schools, governments, health agencies and other community-based nonprofits.
