ABOUT US

The Healthy Pontiac, We Can! (HPWC!) coalition supports and promotes initiatives, organizations and events that improve quality of life through healthier and more active lifestyles. Oakland County's Health Division formed HPWC! in 2011 to help Pontiac residents gain access to healthy food, physical activity opportunities, and tobacco-free living. 


HPWC! is a diverse group of educators, human service agency specialists, faith-based representatives, government leaders, healthcare professionals, public and mental health experts, and residents.  We are an informal group that encourages sharing of current projects, learning opportunities and resources related to our goals. No single group or agency can make a community healthy—so much more can happen by working together. Partnering on planning, promotion and funding helps make our resources work smarter. The coalition's endeavors become improvements throughout the city that make Pontiac a healthier place to live, work, and play.


New partners are always welcome! Getting involved with HPWC! is an excellent way to network with other agencies, organizations and community members. Come to our bi-monthly meetings, sign up for our email updates and become an active member today.

Learn more about HPWC! by contacting healthypontiac@gmail.com to learn how we can all work together!
