Healthy Community Initiative

Thriving Youth. Thriving Community.


We Support Local Youth Programs

Our mission is to cultivate a collaborative community that supports, values and empowers youth. We do not operate any programs. We provide critical behind-the-scenes magic that allows our program partners to put their expertise and resources toward efforts that positively impact youth.
