Health and Wellness


Safeguarding health is fundamental to working for the common good. By promoting wellness, preventing illness and harm and treating injury and disease, communities protect their most valuable asset: human life. The Charlotte Community Foundation has been focused on improving health and wellness in our community since we were first created as a support organization for Adventist Hospital.
