The Healthy Living Collaborative (HLC) was started in 2013 by a group of citizens dedicated to improving health and equity. In our first five years, HLC shaped state and local policy, launched a network of community health workers (CHWs) and built strong ties with communities across the region.
In 2017, we teamed up with SWACH. Today, our focus areas include:
Serving our Communities through Policy Change
We advocate for our communities at the local, regional and state level. We’re committed to shaping policies that support health and health equity. Our participation in state and local policy discussions provides a much-needed place at the table for underserved communities.
Partnering to Improve Health
We bring together health care providers, social service organizations, community groups and others to address barriers to good health. Our partners include the CHW network, a policy committee and more than 60 organizations working together for a healthier future.
Amplifying Community Voices
Everyone’s voice matters when it comes to health and equity. We help community members and organizations partner, listen, share and work together to make this a healthier place – for everyone.
