About Us


To create a culture of health, safety, and vitality in communities, schools, and child care centers throughout Hamilton County.

That’s the mission of Hamilton County Public Health’s WeTHRIVE!℠ initiative.

What started with 50 people in three priority communities in 2009 has expanded to impact more than 300,000 people throughout 28 communities. This still-growing movement, which provides a framework to communities for healthy living, is a result of sustainable thinking from the start.
