The La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership was organized to address areas impacting the health, wellness and livability of the greater La Crescent area. In 2002, we received 501c3 status as a tax-exempt organization. La Crescent Area HCP is a United Way Partner Agency.
La Crescent Area Healthy Community Partnership is grateful for your donations of time or money every day of the year.
Upcoming Events & News
November 16th is Give to the Max Day! Support HCP with your donation here.
Thank you to all the La Crescent-Hokah School District voters who voted YES to support the operating levy for our public schools! We envision our little corner of southeast Minnesota as the healthiest community possible, and in order for this vision to become a reality, we need to insure that our future community members — our children — have access to quality a education. Without healthy schools, we cannot have a healthy community! So a great big thank you to all who worked to educate our citizens about the need for this levy, and let’s all keep working together to improve the health and wellness of our community.
