What is the Thriving Communities program?
Thriving Communities focuses on better meeting the needs of the Latino Community and decreasing health disparities within the Latino and other marginalized communities. This includes, but is not limited to, providing a physical activity and nutrition education curriculum to help teach clients how to eat smart and move more. The program also teams with partners such as the YMCA of Hunterdon, ShopRite of Hunterdon County (including Flemington and Clinton stores), the Center of Diabetes and Nutrition Management through Hunterdon Healthcare, faith-based organizations, and more, to provide education and services that encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Adults who identify as Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) and identify as Latino or other marginalized member of our community.
