Healthy Culpeper is the networking nucleus of a community partner collaboration that is committed to working together to create a healthy, secure, and educated community. Our mission is the understanding that a healthy community is the responsibility of all of its citizens. The collaboration defines health in terms of the emotional, intellectual, physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the community. This reflects our goal to ensure all of Culpeper is committed to being proactive in improving their health, their quality of life, and their community.
Healthy Culpeper’s service to the community is made possible by the generous support of local businesses and corporations, such as Culpeper Human Services, RRCS, Culpeper County, Culpeper Schools, Keysight Technologies, the Fauquier Health Foundation, Northern Piedmont Community Foundation, the National Endowment Foundation, and the dedicated work of our community partners.
Our Goals and Values
Our overall goals are to facilitate networking to community partners that serve the Culpeper area, to support the development of new community programs through the work of our subcommittees, and to enable connections with community resources.

Values that are essential in good partners include: commitment, collaboration, communication, innovation, and respect. Values that relate to the ideal community include: adaptability, caring, citizenship, fairness, cooperation, family-like support, idealism, responsibility, and service.
