Healthy Harford is the healthy communities initiative of Harford County. Founded in 1993 as a non-profit 501c3, Healthy Harford is a coalition of local government agencies, businesses, non profits, and citizens dedicated to improving the health of Harford County residents through education, policy changes, and improvements in the built environmental. Promoting local resources, services, and business that support a healthy lifestyle is a large part of our vision to help make Harford County the healthiest community in Maryland.
We believe that healthy lifestyle choices are an individual decision, but as a community we can work together to create an environment where making the healthy choice, is the easy choice.
