Transforming LaPorte County
We are a committed organization that generates local, state, and national partnerships to address vital health needs in LaPorte County. We have turned a $25,000 designation into millions of dollars to provide health related services across LaPorte County for the last 16 years. We are unique in that we are the only Healthy Communities in Northwest Indiana and one of a few in the entire state. Beginning as an initiative in 1996 we have expanded to include tobacco cessation programs and have worked towards insuring kids and families. We have two coalitions, Health Coalition and Tobacco Prevention & Cessation Coalition. They are both composed of health care providers, social services, wellness organizations, and employers representing focused on making LaPorte County a healthier place.
