Our Mission


Better Public Healthcare-One Neighborhood at a Time

Our members partner with us to close health equity gaps in underinvested communities. 

Together, in partnership with local leaders, innovators and funders, we are building a more responsive, resilient and equitable public health system for a changing world. We call this new model of public healthcare the Neighborhood Health System.

Please visit WACOVID19.org and LearnToReturn.org to learn more about how our members are closing health equity gaps across Washington State.

Member Benefits


We make public health services easier and more efficient to coordinate between local agencies, so our members can deliver a better public health experience to their neighbors. Here’s a success story from one of our member communities, the Kittitas County Health Network:



  • Jerry is 42, lives alone, and struggles with a brain injury from a car accident.

  • For two years, Jerry called 9-1-1 frequently for help with anxiety and mobility issues.

  • Then, a new service routed him to a Multidisciplinary Care Team that helped simplify and personalize his care.

  • The Care Team learned that Jerry had feelings of shame due to his drinking the night of the car accident.

  • Connected with the right services, Jerry shared his story with a safe driving education program.

  • Jerry’s story had a powerful impact on the students and Jerry discovered new self-worth.

  • The coordinated services brought Jerry out of isolation and today, he rarely calls 911.
