Who are we?

   A volunteer collaborative of 25 community leaders
representing schools, out-of-school time programs,
faith-based organizations, child health researchers,
and the broader community.


To foster family-school-community partnerships for
the promotion of children’s physical activity, healthy
eating, and overall child health in
Central Texas.


The Community Collaborative for Child Health is currently being funded for the 2019-2020 year by a community health grant from St. David’s Foundation, for which we are most grateful.
