Working to create



To foster and encourage thriving communities where all children and families can live healthy, safe and productive lives. 


Fresno Building Healthy Communities works to build a long term foundation for a healthier community with its legacy to be carried on for years to come through the leadership of community. Recognizing a democracy in which all community members are valued and included, we believe authentic community transformation and long term positive change can be achieved. 


We are guided by a set of core values:

  • Community voice: We believe in furthering the priorities of community. We are committed to taking a stand in support of the voices and needs of the community.

  • Youth voice: We support the voice and active engagement of youth, as they will be the next generation of leaders in our community.

  • People of color-led: We are led by and are working for the rights of people of color, as well as for the benefit of all our neighbors.

  • Solidarity: We work in solidarity across age, race, sexual orientation, class, gender, faith, language, and immigration status with partners and allies who share our values.

  • Inclusion: We value the inclusion of diverse voices and welcome those who share and demonstrate our core values to join the coalition.

  • Equity: We believe that attention and resources must be prioritized for communities that need it most, so that disparities in life outcomes will be reduced and eventually eliminated.

  • Collaboration: We are stronger when we work together. We practice shared responsibility and leadership, and we maintain our commitment to one another.

  • Accountability: We hold decision-makers and ourselves accountable to the needs and wishes of community.
