Good health, a safe and stable home environment and quality health care are the foundation of a happy, thriving life. That’s why we create, lead and invest in initiatives that teach and promote a healthy lifestyle, prevent family violence and improve access to health care.
Working collectively with community leaders, volunteers, partners and supporters like you, we helped 19,000 adults and youth get the resources needed to live longer, healthier lives.
We’re collaborating with a network of local health departments, providers, insurers, educators and more to help improve the physical and mental health of our community. Health, along with education and income, is one of the building blocks of opportunity.
With help from our partners, we are aspiring toward our Rise United 2030 community goals, which includes making sure that everyone has access to routine health care in the Quad Cities.
