Healthier refers to both individual health and our community’s collective well-being. We know that healthy physical and social environments contribute to healthy people. When the environment around us is healthy, our bodies and minds are healthier too. This means funding work that builds healthy places to live, learn and play.
We support a healthier Alamance County by investing in resources and initiatives that improve access to healthy spaces and places, including playgrounds, splash parks, sidewalks and more. We also work with cities and towns to create nature-based areas and healthy community parks that provide places for children to play and families to have fun together, strengthening their connections to each other and the community.
Together, we’re securing a solid foundation of quality resources and systems to strengthen our community’s physical, mental and emotional health.
