WE ARE COMMITTED TO CHANGE BY DEGREES

Sullivan 180 is a new nonprofit organization created to turn around the health and wellness of Sullivan County, to make the County a healthier place to live, work, play and raise a family. It is a grassroots movement comprised of many but speaking with a single voice in favor of new policies, systems and programs to enhance the overall quality of life for all residents.

We are committed to change by degrees, the kinds of slow, steady and enduring transformation that is thoughtfully conceived and implemented. With an inclusive approach that unites the entire community – businesses, organizations and individuals in healthcare, education, agriculture, government, the arts and faith based institutions.

Sullivan 180 will offer residents opportunities for improving their health and prosperity. This encompasses not only physical, but also mental, spiritual and environmental wellness. A sense of purpose; connection to family and community and access to fresh foods; and an active lifestyle are all-essential for a thriving Sullivan County.
