Our Work

Our collaborative projects, programs and initiatives
work to improve the health of the Lompoc Valley.

By understanding the community and its needs, we prioritize interventions focused on local policy changes, infrastructure and system improvements and events or educational offerings that make the greatest impact for all. 

Together, We Make Good Health Happen

Where we live, work, play and learn influences our physical and mental health. There is much that can be done to create and maintain a healthy community in Lompoc. Healthier people produce greater economic outputs, consume fewer healthcare resources and lead better, longer lives. When you make healthy choices for you and your family, you are making the decision to live happier, healthier and longer.

The same goes for a community. With healthy policy, infrastructure, activity and program choices, the entire community has the opportunity to live a healthier life. Our efforts bring together individuals, organizations, businesses, funders and more across sector lines to recognize that a healthy community is a better community on virtually every measure of success and that healthy living should be within reach of all people.
