"He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything."
Thomas Carlyle

Good health affects everything from how well a child can learn to how much an adult can earn – it’s one of the building blocks of opportunity.  The Wabash Valley consistently ranks low in the United States for poor health outcomes which indicates higher than national rates of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and preventable disease.

What We Do

Our Community Health Council will be working to address the needs of our entire community to create a healthier and more vibrant Wabash Valley.

Impact Council

Our Community Health Impact Council, a multi-sector volunteer committee of nonprofit, government, education, and business leaders are experts in and/or are passionate about supporting the health and wellbeing of the Wabash Valley.

The impact council is newly formed and is still creating its strategy guide which will lead their investments and initiatives in our community to bring successful results to their agreed-upon specific outcome targets in support of the overall United Way community goal.
