The Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties is a grassroots based partnership whose vision is to mobilize, share, and collaborate for healthy communities where all have opportunities to grow, live and learn. Our mission is to strive to promote and support sustainable, culturally inclusive prevention services, community initiatives, and capacity building systems that address all factions of a healthy community for all members.
Healthy Communities Coalition (HCC) serves as a neutral convener and a backbone organization with a collective impact resulting from strategies that promote health and wellness and improve behavioral health outcomes. Our Comprehensive Community Prevention Plan serves as an integrated prevention framework with strategies for the implementation of data-driven and evidence-based approaches. We use multiple strategies because no single strategy or program can move a community level indicator. Positive community change comes about through a collective impact when all sectors, including community members of all ages and diverse organizations, work together on common goals.
