Community Initiatives & Events
Live Healthy Vineland:
Our Y is a partner with the Vineland Health Department working to create a better place for residents to live, work and play.
LIVE HEALTHY VINELAND (LHV) is a partnership of several public and private organizations that aim to make Vineland a healthier place to live, work and play. The initiative is an extension of the New Jersey Partnership of Healthy Kids (NJPHK-V), which was founded in 2009 with co-directorship by the Cumberland County YMCA and the Vineland Health Department through funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. LHV aims to expand the reach and accomplishments of NJPHK-V through a variety of community, school, and work based initiatives.
Live Healthy Vineland's primary focus at this time is the "Community Hub" initiative, taking place in four locations around Vineland:
- Downtown Deli
- Vasquez and Diaz
- Rock of Salvation Church
- La Unica
These locations host local organizations and businesses offering resources and services to residents who may otherwise not be able to access them.
