Foundation Focus: Community Health and Wellness

Resources are available to improve the quality of health and well-being for all residents.

What we envision:

  • Adult residents are connected to resources and services that meet their health, education, nutrition, physical fitness and safety needs regardless of their financial capacity.

What we support:

  • Programs that improve the quality of life for lower income residents.
  • Educational and therapeutic programs that enable adults with low literacy and special needs to more fully participate in community life.
  • Direct support through local nonprofit providers for specific wellness needs, i.e. healthy meals, housing, transportation, etc.
  • Support for other aspects of community life that improve wellbeing for area residents.
  • Support for veterans and their families.

What we measure:

  • How many clients are served.
  • How the program enables residents to have a better quality of life going forward
