Healthy kids. That’s our goal.

Every child needs a village – a connected community of caring adults to support them and safe and supportive environments that will allow them to thrive. Our coalition embraces kids at the center of all decision making. We fight for policies, systems, and environmental changes that nurture whole child health by building healthy minds, bodies and relationships.
