Building Healthy Communities

Building Healthy Communities is a 10-year, $1 billion statewide campaign funded by The California Endowment. The Del Norte and Tribal Lands BHC, one of only 14 across the state, is dedicated to creating and supporting health equity, services and opportunities in our neighborhoods and schools.

The Del Norte and Tribal Lands BHC site is growing leaders that are reshaping the places that influence our children, our neighborhoods and schools. The Wild Rivers Community Foundation office serves as the hub for the BHC staff, which bring together diverse groups of residents, youth, community partners, government agencies and nonprofits all working to guarantee that growing up in this community fosters lifelong health and success for all.
