Health and Human Services Fund
Let’s work together so all Long Beach community members can thrive! The mission of the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services (LBDHHS) is to improve the quality of life by promoting a safe and healthy community in which to live, work, and play. As one of only three city-operated health jurisdictions in the State of California, the LBDHHS has the unique opportunity to develop locally designed programs and policies tailored to improve the health and wellness of Long Beach residents and communities. The LBDHHS defines health using the World Health Organization’s definition of health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
The LBDHHS believes in the power of community and views its work through an equity lens, believing that one’s zip code should not determine one’s health status. Your donation to the Health and Human Services Fund will support programs, policies, and services that improve health directly, as well as other factors that directly affect health such as employment, housing, opportunities to be active and eat well, and more. Please join us by making a donation today.
