Health and Wellness Initiative

Community Action’s Health and Wellness Initiative addresses health disparities that impact impoverished communities in Anne Arundel County through prevention and awareness activities.

The Agency increases health and wellness touch points, promotes healthy lifestyles, supports and assists customers in accessing health and wellness resources, and builds and strengthens public policy action on health access issues.


Each month, the Health and Wellness Initiative showcases wellness themes to build awareness of specific diseases and preventative measures people can take to safeguard their health. The Agency also provides workshops and activities to address wellness related topics such as: COVID-19 prevention practices, stress reduction, heart disease management, weight loss and obesity, cancer education, smoking cessation, exercise, substance abuse, mental health, and nutrition education, among others.

Agency staff are also on hand to help each customer navigate the application process to obtain the health insurance policy that is in alignment with their needs and household budget.  This service ensures our customers are able to access the medical care they need.
