Community Health

Nurturing a healthy foundation

Health and Wellness services at Pillsbury United Communities improve the lives of the thousands of people in our neighborhoods. Through culturally relevant health education and nutrition programs, health clinics, healthcare assistance, and fitness activities, we focus on the well being of children, teens and adults.

From emergency resources like our food shelves to the Culinary Arts program at Waite House, andthe HIV outreach and testing at Pillsbury House + Theatre to the Let’s Move program at Oak Park Youth + Family Center, we look at both the immediate needs and the root causes of inequalities in health and nutrition. By addressing both of these areas, we help people better care for themselves, their chidlren, and the priorities that matter to them.
