Health & Well-Being

The happiness and success of families and the welfare of children are reliant upon personal health and  well-being. Healthy, well-cared for individuals are more capable of taking care of their children. Healthy, well-cared-for children are more able to take advantage of opportunities to advance their education and enrich their lives.

The Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation funding in this area is focused on:

  • Ensuring access to quality healthcare as well as mental health counseling and services at the community level, such as through community health centers.
  • Ensuring access to programs that encourage and support self-sufficiency, particularly among single-parent families in transition.
  • Supporting research which contributes to health and well-being.
