Better health leads to better lives. When we’re healthy, we’re able to enjoy life, provide for our families, realize our dreams, and contribute to our communities.
Our Focus on Health Falls Into Three Distinct Areas
By 2020, our goal is to ensure that all North Texans have access to nutritious food, quality health care, a safe place to call home and the chance to lead healthy, productive lives. Last year, we invested $8 million and supported programs for healthy living.
We support programs that encourage healthy eating and exercise behaviors in both children and adults, programs to promote sobriety, mental health, as well as provide access to primary care helping prevent a variety of health issues that shorten lives and strain community resources. Learn more about them below and get inspired to lend a hand.
Family Violence Prevention
From intervention services to parental education to therapy and advocacy for victims, we support a range of exceptional North Texas programs that help break the cycle of family violence.
Healthy Moms & Babies
We help provide prenatal health care and pediatric health care to those who otherwise wouldn’t have it, so local families can avoid health issues in the future. See how we’re protecting the next generation and get inspired to help.
