We believe all people have a desire, and a basic human right, to be well.

We define wellness as a state of complete physical, mental, spiritual, economic and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Society, structural systems, community, neighborhood, and family are collectively responsible for creating an environment of health and wellness. Wellness is personal and is not the same for everyone.

Health equity exists only when people can attain their full health potential, regardless of resources, circumstance, skin color or identity. This potential can only be reached when we reduce – and ultimately eliminate –the disparities that adversely impact marginalized and under-resourced communities.

We envision a San Diego and Imperial County region where equitable health resources lead to universal health and well-being.
We work to advance health and wellness for the most vulnerable in San Diego and Imperial counties.

We accomplish this work through funding, convening and advocacy, with funders, nonprofit, social enterprises, government and community agencies to advance health and wellness.
