TheHealthy Lives Vibrant Futures Coalition (HLVF) addresses top health concerns for Cascade County. Every three years, a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) public survey is conducted to identify top health priorities. That data is presented to the public and community feedback is utilized to develop a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
HLVF steering committee members help ensure that their agencies are implementing the strategies outlined in the CHIP. Many local agencies are already actively working towards improving the issues listed in the CHIP, and the priority area committees give organizations an opportunity to share their progress, pool resources, and determine what further action can be taken to improve the health of our community.
HLVF is comprised of representatives from:
Alliance for Youth
Benefis Health System
Cascade City-County Health Department
Great Falls Clinic
Get Fit Great Falls
United Way of Cascade County
Indian Family Health Center
Many more organizations!
