A healthy community is one that promotes positive physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The Lutheran Foundation is committed to building healthier communities by investing in organizations whose purpose is to address the root cause of health needs in our communities.

Focus Areas

  • Reduce stigma and increase emotional well-being by promoting community awareness and understanding that mental and behavioral health conditions are common, can be debilitating, and are responsive to treatment.
  • Promote early screening, diagnosis and treatment in order to improve and integrate mental and behavioral health and well-being services with primary care.
  • Provide access to health care for the uninsured/ underinsured for preventative health care, diagnosis, and treatment services
  • Encourage consistent and significant adult involvement in the lives of vulnerable individuals (children, youth and/or adults) with particular emphasis on building and strengthening resilience, coping skills, and connectedness among peers, families, and communities in order to improve mental, behavioral, and physical health and well-being
