The Healthy Community Collaborative (formerly the Healthy Community Council) was established by stakeholders representing community agencies, universities, and nonprofit organizations in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Virginia. The goal of the early HCC was to conduct community needs assessments in Harrisonburg City and Rockingham County.
Rooted in the inherent dignity and worth of each person, we foster connections and relationships with all our neighbors.
The collective wisdom and lived experience of our community guides the positive changes we pursue and achieve.
Our responsibility is to our community, and we commit to follow through on our promises to have a meaningful and positive impact.
We humbly take responsibility for the impact of our actions and words, and are always learning how to do our work better.
The HCC engaged in and completed a Strategic Planning Process to help determine the new direction, goals, and mission of the coalition.
