Ensuring a healthy region where all residents have access to quality health care and nutritious food.
Thrive and Prosper
Personal and public health isn’t a luxury; it’s essential. Access to quality, integrated health and human services is the bedrock of community, vital to a robust quality of life and sense of well-being. Health and human services, known as society’s “safety net,” are provided through a mix of public agencies, civic organizations and nonprofits funded by government and private sources.
Metro Atlanta’s nonprofits providing health and human services range enormously in size and capacity, mission and method.
In partnership with strong, community-focused nonprofit organizations and the public sector, the Community Foundation seeks to achieve greater access to quality health services and nutritious food for Atlanta area residents.
We’ll measure progress by tracking:
- Percentage of residents with health coverage
- Percentage of residents who are food secure (i.e., have consistent access to adequate food)
- Reduction in the number of residents with chronic health conditions (HIV/AIDS, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, etc.)
