Health & Wellness
The Community Foundation maintains an ongoing interest in the health and wellness of our region with a simple goal in mind — to ensure that Central Virginia 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 that help combat high crime rates, child abuse and substance abuse.
We work closely with our funding partners — the Jenkins Foundation and the Sheltering Arms Fund — to advance the following goals. Grants funded made possible by these partners are noted below.
- 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 need.
