Healthy Culpeper was established in 1997 as the result of a community health assessment conducted by Culpeper Regional Hospital. This “alliance of stakeholders included a board of directors, community partners, and three working committees, including Early Childhood, Teen/Prevention Coalition, and Adult/Senior committee (The Adult/Senior committee is now the Aging Together Organization). The organization’s 501c3 status was achieved in June of 2004. On August 1, 2017, Healthy Culpeper’s 501C3 status was dissolved. However, the organization continues to provide service to our community partners and community members in the same capacity under the jurisdiction of Culpeper Human Services.
We are made up of 100+ Community Partners – non-profits, government agencies, and organizations that provide services or conduct programming in the County of Culpeper. Approximately forty members meet each month for a networking lunch to hear presentations, and share community partner updates and announcements, events, and training. If you would like to attend or be added to our email list, please contact Denise Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those interested in delving more deeply into community issues and possible solutions, Healthy Culpeper suggests three committees for that opportunity. They include: Early Childhood & Youth Committee, Teen/Prevention Coalition, and the Aging Together Culpeper Team. These committees devise plans, events and partnerships with other partners to create innovative and efficient solutions to community needs.
