Community health is community wealth... lets all invest in it!
Every child has a loving, nurturing parent/family. and there is a connectedness among families who help each other when in need.
We are compassionate and respectful of others, even in the resolving of conflicts.
We equally value people of all ages and see a wide mix of ages in our schools, our workplaces, and our apartment dwellings.
Our schools are preparing our children for real world challenges and also teaching them healthy lifestyle practices so they can avoid unnecessary diseases in the future.
We have clean air and clean water and continue to preserve all the natural beauty of the islands.
We have healthy, locally grown food available to us, and we have trail systems throughout the islands that foster more walking/hiking.
People feel safe wherever they are.
Our work places value health and in many ways demonstrate that they value family needs as well.
Affordable health care is easily accessible to everyone and includes alternative as well as traditional medicine, with an on-going emphasis on prevention.
We have central community gathering locations/community hubs where people of all ages come together for a wide variety of activities.
We have community celebration days that bring people together in the spirit of celebration.
