EVERYONE DESERVES A PLACE TO THRIVE
In healthy neighborhoods, children ride bikes and play together in nearby parks. Parents buy healthy, affordable foods at local markets. And community leaders and police have a shared vision for what it takes to keep communities safe. Thriving neighborhoods aren’t just pleasant, they’re healthy. Research shows that people living in healthy communities are less likely to suffer from heart disease, diabetes, and obesity and are more likely to live a healthier, happier life.

The California Endowment is investing in residents, community groups, and public servants to change the odds so that health happen in all neighborhoods.
