The Healthy Blair County Coalition (HBCC)
The Healthy Blair County Coalition (HBCC) is an active collaboration of individuals and organizations working to promote the social, economic, emotional, and physical well-being of our area residents.
The mission of the HBCC is to assess and impact all aspects of a healthy Blair County by sharing resources, engaging local partnerships, and implementing strategies and programs to make a difference in the lives of the people in our community.
Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2019. Participate in the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment
The Healthy Blair County Coalition (HBCC) is conducting a community health needs assessment. As part of that effort, households are being surveyed to learn more about the strengths and issues in neighborhoods. Three thousand surveys were mailed to a random sampling of households in Blair County. Responses from individual households will remain anonymous. If your household receives a survey, please complete using the instructions provided in the mailing.
Any resident who did not receive a survey in the mail and is interested in completing one can click to complete the survey . In addition, other surveys are being emailed to service providers, associations, key informants and faith-based organizations. The information gathered from the needs assessment will be compiled over the next few months and used by many organizations to improve services and programs throughout Blair County.
