DNATL Outcomes & Progress


In 2010, The Endowment will launch Building Healthy Communities, a 10-year strategic plan designed to improve health systems and the physical, social, economic and service structures that support healthy living and healthy behaviors in California.

Four goals will guide our work:
  • Our children grow up to be healthy, productive and successful adults in a community that promotes their well-being -through prevention, education and positive direction from their earliest days. 
  • Our children grow up to be safe and secure in a community that values their lives and teaches and demonstrates respect for one another. Children and families are safe from violence in their homes and neighborhoods 
  • Neighborhood and school environments support improved health and healthy behaviors. 
  • Our community believes that health is intrinsically tied to a strong economy. Our local economy is strengthened because of our focus on locally determined strategies that reduce poverty, promote hard-work, risk-taking, creativity and enjoyment of work.
DNATL's Shared Premise for Our Building Healthy Communities Effort:

Our children should dream about their futures – and those dreams should be framed by family, health, safety,economic security, education and hope.We believe that their dreams are our community responsibility. We believe that early intervention and prevention are the critical keys to strengthening families, ensuring the economic assets of the families, preventing families from entering the justice and child welfare systems, instilling a life-long love of learning, and enhancing the health of every resident.



Outcomes for BHC Del Norte County and Adjacent Tribal Lands


3) Our children grow up to be healthy, productive and successful adults in a community that promotes their well-­‐being through prevention, education and positive direction from their earliest days.

5) Our children grow up to be safe and secure in a community that values their lives and teaches and demonstrates respect for one another. Children and families are safe from violence in their homes and neighborhoods.

7) Neighborhood and school environments support improved health and healthy behaviors.

8) Community health improvements are linked to economic development. All communities deserve their fair share of economic resources. New projects should balance economic gains with health and environmental concern, and guarantee that local residents reap the benefits of economic development.

10) California has a shared vision of community health. This goal is about changing social norms. It requires a shared awareness of all the factors that contribute to health, a focus on prevention and a movement of people who advocate for health. This new awareness leads to changes in laws, policies and practices that improve not only the health of individual communities, but all Californians.
