Healthier Jupiter is a community initiative addressing health and quality of life issues starting with diabetes prevention and management extending to other areas of wellness. Healthier Jupiter brings the community together by listening to the needs of all, building support, and providing resources to empower residents to make healthier choices.
In 2013, building on the strong history of working alongside communities and neighborhoods and with a commitment to community engagement, collaboration and inclusion, Palm Healthcare Foundation’s trustees evolved the foundation’s grantmaking approach by launching its community-driven Healthier Together initiative. Over a five year period, the foundation will invest $1 million in each of the 6 selected communities to make a lasting, sustainable impact around some of the most complex health-related issues affecting residents. Using a collective impact model, the foundation’s strategic shift emphasizes the partnership between the communities and the foundation as the two work hand in hand to build organizational and individual capacities, infrastructure, programming and services.
The goal of Healthier Jupiter initiative is to create awareness of high rates of Type 2 Diabetes in the greater Jupiter area. Diabetes was selected as a focus because promoting healthy lifestyles can prevent or manage diabetes as well as many other chronic diseases. El Sol is proud to be an integral member of Healthier Jupiter and Healthier Together Initiative.
