We’re Getting a New Look!
In January 2022, we will be launching our brand new website, along with a new logo and look. WWR will always have the same core values and principles, but it’s time to be met with a refreshed look to keep up with how we have evolved over the years.
As we are in a transitional period with this revitalization, please be patient as you navigate our current website.
Stay tuned to our social media pages for sneak peeks of our new logo!

Amplify and align: existing efforts to promote and focus attention where transformational change is needed in community wellbeing across the region.
Respond and act: actively develop new solutions and actions to address community issues.
Educate and enhance knowledge: to learn from one another and understand system wide issues and address inequities.
A community where everyone thrives and no one is left behind.
