Healthy Faith-Based Communities
Healthy Harford functions as a connector entity in the Harford County community, bringing together partners from throughout our region to help improve health outcomes.
Improving one’s health and adopting a healthy lifestyle can be a spiritual journey for some, as well as knowing that what we may not be able to achieve individually, we can achieve with the support of our community. Healthy Harford works with the faith community to help congregations learn integrate healthy lifestyles into their worship of the Creator – respecting body mind and spirit.
