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.

The La Crescent Community Bike Shoppe accepts donated bikes, repairs and sells gently used bikes.  We can even build you a custom bike! We are now located at 520 S. 14th St., the Community Arena, under the green awning.   Summer hours (through September): Saturdays 9 AM- 12 PM, Tuesday and Thursdays, 6 – 8 PM. Follow us on Facebook at ‘The Bike Shoppe.’


Touching Moments Animal Assisted Activities and Windy Ridge Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center have been serving residents of Houston County and the surrounding area for several years by providing animal assisted activities to those in need in our community.  To celebrate the good work our volunteers and animals do, Touching Moments and Windy Ridge Ranch have created a Pet Treat Cookbook for all the dog, cat and horse lovers in our area. The book sells for $10.00 each and orders can be placed by calling 507/894-2210. We are excited to present the book and would like to thank our businesses sponsors who supported this community project by including their business in the new book!
