Creating Healthier Communities Together
Together with our partners, we’re working towards a more holistic and equitable system where local services better support all dimensions of well-being for every community member. Social and economic factors like food security, housing and jobs determine more than 60% of well-being. Clinical care addresses symptoms, but the root of well-being begins in the community.

How We Work
Listen to the Community
Every community is unique and hosts a diverse range of well-being satisfaction and health concerns. Through community research, we identify what matters most in the communities we serve and help our partners create pathways for action.
Health happens where and while we live, work and play. Collaborating with communities and creating connections allows us to improve access to resources, build better clinical and community linkages and develop trusted partnerships.
Harness Community Power
We believe that everything we need to thrive is readily available within our communities. By fostering connections, sharing common tools and information we’re working to support a collective means for the community to work together to expand the depth, usability and equity of available resources.

We work upstream from medical care, addressing the social and economic factors that contribute to poor health.
Addressing the root causes of poor health outcomes creates a happier, healthier community and reduces burden on the medical system.
Factors like access to healthy food, reliable housing and personal safety play a much larger role in well-being than clinical care.
We connect the community with local well-being partners, creating a sustainable approach to our collective health.
