About Us

HEALTH AND WELL-BEING FOR ALL

Live Well Wake is about equal opportunity for health and well-being for all.

We want all members of our community – regardless of background, neighborhood or circumstance – to be able to not just live, but to flourish. And we want everyone to be a part of the conversation about how to make that happen.

Formed out of the Community Health Needs Assessment and Population Health Task Force initiatives, Live Well Wake is a collaborative effort that relies on our community at-large to build partnerships to meet our goal. Through focused events and initiatives, we’ll aim to educate, motivate and learn about what our community needs to ensure collective community wellness.

Live Well Wake brings together the county’s major health organizations and community members from all walks of life to address the five major priorities from the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment:

TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS & TRANSIT

Transportation is essential in a growing, thriving region like Wake County — and access to public transit options is vital for our overall health and well being.

EMPLOYMENT

So much of our lives revolves around employment and finding careers that help us fulfill our purpose. But stressors related to work, unemployment and under-employment greatly increase the risk of adverse personal health issues.

ACCESS TO CARE

Everyone has the right to be healthy. Having proper access to the right healthcare for your needs is a top priority. We’re working to make that right a reality.

MENTAL HEALTH & SUBSTANCE ABUSE DISORDERS

To be a healthy community, we must focus on the mental well being of our residents. Ensuring that we have the resources available to support mental health, including addressing substance use issues, is of paramount importance.

HOUSING & HOMELESSNESS

When you don’t know where you will sleep or eat each night, every other decision about your life is secondary. By addressing housing affordability and offering programs to prevent homelessness, we’re aiming to make sure every resident in the county has a place to rest at night. This kind of security will help them prepare to take on more positive challenges in their own personal growth.
