A healthy community creates and improves both its physical and social environments. People help to support one another in daily life and help others to reach their fullest potential. Healthy places are those designed and built to improve the quality of life for all people who live, work, worship, learn, and play within their borders — where every person is free to make choices amid a variety of healthy, available, accessible, and affordable options. At Chesprocott, we help each of our three communities to develop and sustain healthy communities and healthy homes through education and program development.
