POWER Defiance County

Promoting Overall Wellness and Empowering Residents (POWER) Defiance County 

POWER Defiance County is a coalition of agencies and service providers addressing the needs of the Defiance County community. The work of public health is more a system than a single agency. Working together we can achieve a healthier Defiance County!

The 2016-2018 Community Health Improvement Plan was drafted by agencies and service providers within Defiance County. The committee reviewed many sources of information concerning the health and social challenges Defiance County adults, youth and children may be facing. They determined priority issues which if addressed, could improve future outcomes, determined gaps in current programming and policies and examined best practices and
solutions. The committee has recommended specific actions steps they hope many agencies and organizations will embrace to address the priority issues in the coming months and years. We would like to recognize these individuals and thank them for their devotion to this process and this body of work:
