Healthy Communities Partnership
of Greater Franklin County
Healthy Communities Partnership of Greater Franklin County has been working for more than 20 years with a mission of advancing the health and well-being of Franklin County residents. HCP’s vision is to be a leading catalyst for health and well-being initiatives in Franklin County. The Partnership, under new leadership since 2008 began utilizing the six dimensions of wellness, as defined by Vanderbilt University: physical, emotional, psycho-social, spiritual, intellectual, and environmental.
These dimensions come together to guide all programming for the partnership.
Our Objectives and Goals...
1) Bring together organizations with similar goals to form working partnerships, facilitate relationships
and create work teams to carry out activities.
2) Share resources and materials, open dialogues among members to express commonalities and
create respectful discussion.
3) Foster new ideas and implement positive changes through collaborative problem solving
and best practices.
Our current programs include...
