We are a committed organization that generates local, state, and national partnerships to address vital health needs in LaPorte County. We have turned a $25,000 designation into millions of dollars to provide health related services across LaPorte County for the last 16 years. We are unique in that we are the only Healthy Communities in Northwest Indiana and one of a few in the entire state. Beginning as an initiative in 1996 we have expanded to include tobacco cessation programs and have worked towards insuring kids and families. We also educate and chair the Healthy Communities Coalition of LaPorte County, an interactive council composed of health care providers, social services, wellness organizations, and employers representing LaPorte County.
Covering Kids & Families of Indiana, Inc. (CKF-IN) is a statewide organization committed to ensuring that all children and families eligible for Medicaid and the State’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) are enrolled.
The Healthy Communities Coalition of LaPorte County was the first council established by HCLC at the agency’s conception in 1996. The mission of the council is to seek out and address important health and wellness issues.
The Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Coalition has allowed HCLC to collaborate with several local healthcare providers, employers and organizations on innovative prevention and cessation projects throughout this county.
