Community Wellness Council
We are a cooperative of community organizations and individuals,dedicated to improving the quality of life in Valencia County by providing an avenue for collaboration of communities, businesses and governments.
As a health council, we provide county-wide health assessment and planning. We developed and update yearly a county health profile utilizing county and community specific statistical data along with primary information from community surveys, focus groups and key informant interviews. From the profile we identified three health priorities and developed a four-year health improvement plan to address them. The Health Improvement Plan is offered to community leaders and decision makers as a guide for health improvement planning in Valencia County. The council also offers the opportunity for service provider and social service agencies to network and to coordinate their efforts to make the best use of limited resources.
