What We Do

Healthy Richmond


Healthy Richmond is a 10-year partnership to create meaningful and lasting improvements in the health of children and youth in Richmond. Richmond is part of The California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities, a ten-year, comprehensive community initiative that is creating a revolution in the way Californians think about and support health in their communities. In Richmond, residents are proving that they have the power to make health happen in their neighborhoods, schools, and with prevention – and in doing so, they’re creating a brighter future for our state.

We envision a Richmond that is economically viable and sustainable, physically designed to promote healthy eating and active living, culturally vibrant, and connected across generations. Social support and vital services flow through a seamless network of neighborhood institutions and agencies. Community members are engaged and see their priorities reflected in all aspects of the community – environment, governance, schools, cultural life, and business development.
