Del Norte County and the adjacent tribal lands (DNATL) is one of fourteen places in California participating in Building Healthy Communities (BHC), an initiative of The California Endowment (TCE). The goal of BHC is to “support the development of communities where kids and youth are healthy, safe and ready to learn.” This report provides a set of community health indicators intended to give a snapshot of the past and current conditions in Del Norte County and to help guide and assess outcomes resulting from improvement efforts. Community health indicators are measures that act as barometers for underlying community health. Through regular assessments using a common set of indicators, communities can determine if policy and systems changes are making a difference.
