We believe that all residents deserve access to physical activity and nutrition, every single day. Furthermore, we know that it takes a network to make positive change possible. Because this connects everything we do, we work with many local partners to make our future a healthy one.

After holding surveys to listen and learn what issues our Hispanic neighbors face, plans are starting to take shape. Due to what we learned, LHRW, Hispanic Outreach, and HACER organized a Latino Leadership Training Program in 2018.
