A Catalyst for Healthier Communities
Barriers to health faced by low-income families are far too prevalent in our state. Thirty percent of Colorado communities lack healthy food retail options, and many don’t have safe sidewalks, parks, or recreational facilities. Together with our local partners, LiveWell is improving access to healthy food and physical activity, creating and sustaining healthy changes to public environments, and advancing health equity in communities across Colorado.
