Updated January 2021

2021 Grant Cycle 1 OPENS January 15, 2021.

Healthcare Foundation of La Porte (HFL) is dedicated to our mission of empowering residents to live healthy and well within La Porte County. HFL identifies health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” as defined by the World Health Organization. We recognize that wellness is the “active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.” The six dimensions of wellness are emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual as developed by the National Wellness Institute.

Many issues affect the health and wellness of La Porte County residents. HFL is committed to supporting a diverse range of health and wellness programs and services to achieve the vision of La Porte becoming one of the top 10 healthiest communities in Indiana. We envision partnering with many types of community organizations through thoughtful grantmaking to invest in building a healthier community together.
