HVCS’ mission is to promote prevention and wellness for all people, to encourage life-affirming decisions maximizing their quality of life, and to coordinate care for those living with complex health conditions.
We envision the Hudson Valley as a place where all people, regardless of socio-economic status, live healthy lives and have access to the coordinated care they need to maintain their health. And by health, we mean all aspects: physical, mental, social and self-worth. A healthy Hudson Valley connects people living with serious, long-term illnesses with a wide variety of support systems to optimize their health and wellbeing, from great nutrition to access to services, freedom from the debilitating effects of substance abuse to eliminating the stigma that co-infects those with HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, and other diseases. The healthy Hudson Valley we picture is one in which underserved, disenfranchised communities cease to lag behind their more affluent neighbors on all health indices.
