Driving Directions


The greater the quality of mental and physical health of its citizens the more productive a community can be. Children in particular if fed and cared for adequately will thrive and flourish. The Foundation supports efforts to improve health outcomes through improved access to primary care, mental health services, hunger prevention, homeless prevention and domestic abuse. Many health programs supported by the Powell Foundation are focused on children in schools.
