Community Partners (CP)
We are made up of 50+ Community Partners - non-profits, government agencies, and organizations that provide services or conduct programming in the County of Culpeper. We meet each month for a networking lunch to hear presentations, participate in roundtables and make announcements or provide information on programs and services.If you'd like to attend or add yourself to our email list, please contact, Denise.Two members of our Community Partners also serve as elected representatives to the Board of Directors.

For those interested in delving more deeply into community issues, Healthy Culpeper's 3 committees offers that opportunity. They include: Early Childhood & Youth, Teen/Prevention Coalition, and Adult/Senior. They are the "workhorse" of the organization-focusing in on their area to devise plans, programming and partnerships with others to create innovative and efficient solutions to community issues.
