Health & Human Services: Vision

The vision of the health and human services action team is that by 2025, all residents have the opportunity to enjoy a positive state of health including physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.


Health & Human Services: Goals

Goal 1: By 2025, death and disability from chronic disease (e.g., heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease diabetes, tobacco-related diseases) among Corvallis residents will be reduced by 25%.

Goal 2: By 2025, our community’s discharge and exposure to persistent, bio-accumulative and/or toxic pollutants into the local biosphere will be eliminated.

Goal 3: By 2025, 50% of Corvallis residents will volunteer in the community, resulting in 1) dedicated citizens, 2) healthier and happier residents, 3) inclusion of diverse groups, and 4) sharing of expertise to help meet the needs of the community.
