The goal of mariposa county health and human services agency (HHSA) is to enhance the well-being of people in a safe and thriving community. The 2022 Community Health Assessment (CHA) ensures we have the information we need to work towards community health improvement goals. The community health assessment looks at the community, as a whole – it’s strengths and resources as well as its opportunities for improvements. The priorities identified in The Community Health Assessment (CHA) and the needs articulated by the people who contributed to its creation help guide community activities and initiatives to improve community health and will be the basis for the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHA and the CHIP will help Mariposa County and community partners better invest resources and position Mariposa County to more efficiently and creatively reduce inequities in health outcomes.
