History

In 1993, King County Children and Family Commission’s Healthy Communities Project was established in response to three budget provisos from the King County Council. The purpose was to create a process among members of the public, Commission members, elected officials and County employees to develop a vision of a healthy community for King County’s children and families and identify concrete ways of evaluating our progress toward that vision.
