ABOUT SOUTHEAST WASHINGTON ALLIANCE FOR HEALTH

Here at Southeast Washington Alliance for Health, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2000, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment and progress.

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Southeast Washington Alliance for Health emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.

OUR PURPOSE

To develop short and long term community health priorities and objectives that generate recommendations for planning, implementing, and aligning action of healthcare providers, partners, and community organizations throughout Columbia, Garfield and Asotin Counties. The Southeast WA Alliance for Health is not intended to replace county-level planning and action but instead to support coordination and alignment across counties and shared populations, leading to more effective programs and use of resources.
