Wellness and Well-Being

The greatest asset any community has is the health and well-being of its residents including families, schools, and businesses alike. United Way of Central Minnesota is focused on the physical and mental health of every person, young and old. Access to resources and strong connections to partner organizations helps us reach even more people as we mobilize our efforts to bring health and wellness to all.

What Healthy Living Looks Like

Health is often unfairly overlooked for many families because it’s hard to prioritize the cost of healthcare. We all feel that and it’s no small feat to address or overcome. Physical activity, childhood obesity, access to vaccinations, adequate meals outside of school hours, and mental health support are all initiatives that fall under the broad health category of what we do within United Way of Central Minnesota.
