Health & Wellness

River Counties Community Foundation maintains an ongoing interest in the health and wellness of our region with a simple goal in mind -- to ensure that local residents are safe and healthy. Our holistic view of health includes access to quality and affordable health care, appropriate use of a medical home and initiatives that empower individuals to develop active, healthy lifestyles that begin in childhood and continue through all phases of life. We also invest in programs that promote safe home, school and neighborhood environments.

Our goals:

  • Residents have access to comprehensive and coordinated preventative services and quality health care.
  • Residents are connected to resources that meet their health, nutritional and safety needs.
