The Verdant Health Commission funds a wide range of programs that empower people in South Snohomish County to make healthy decisions and get the care they need to stay well.
For nearly half a century, we served the health needs of our community by managing the local community hospital. We are now focused on investing in innovative programs that will make a lasting impact on the health and well-being of South Snohomish County residents, with many free or low-cost education and prevention classes taking place at the Verdant Community Wellness Center in Lynnwood.

Verdant invests in community programs in many ways, including by making one-time or multi-year grants to community groups, nonprofits, government agencies, and others organizations. These grants can serve our community in different ways – some are intended for all residents and others serve targeted groups within our community, such as youth or older adults.
