About Women for Healthy Rural Living
Our mission is to advance and promote the health and well-being of the woman, her family, and her community.
Research shows that women are the primary healthcare consumers for their families. By targeting our message to women, we hope to impact the health and wellness of the entire family and community.
Our organization takes a preventative approach to the many health issues and disparities in western Washington County. Our goal is to provide an equitable and accessible path to health and wellness. We address the foundational elements of health as they pertain to the unique needs of our Downeast neighbors. In particular, WHRL focuses on human wholeness, addressing physical wellness and emotional, social, and spiritual health. Priority areas include: 1) creating greater food security and improving nutrition, 2) providing more opportunities for physical activity, 3) building community connections, and 4) affording access to nature. Our programs are open to all.
