New website launch!

Welcome to the new and improved HWCLI website! In addition to the updated look, the website has been redesigned to highlight the focus areas in which HWCLI passionately works, and you’ll get a better glimpse into how we address issues in these focus areas through member engagement, policy and advocacy work, coalition building, and meeting community needs.

Further, this blog is a new component to the website, allowing us to communicate quickly and effectively issues related to our focus areas of Access to Healthcare, Disaster Recovery, Economic Stability, Nutritional Security, and Regional Planning. Plus, the new website is mobile-friendly, and can be viewed on your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to stay up to speed on our blog wherever you are.

We hope you like the new look and feel as much as we do!
