The HELLO Project is a BUILD Health Challenge initiative supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and deBeaumont Foundation, which is now led by Truckee Meadows Tomorrow. The purpose of the HELLO Project, which is also supported by Washoe County Health District, Renown Health, Hometown Health and Geriatric Specialty Care, is to prevent senior loneliness, isolation and mental health concerns.


Truckee Meadows Tomorrow took over the administrative and leadership role in the HELLO Project after the recent merger with Truckee Meadows Healthy Communities and will integrate it into existing community efforts and initiatives, which includes leadership in quality-of-life data as it relates to topics such as overall community demographics, environment, economy, education, health, social determinants and equity. That data is easily comparable with local, state, and national jurisdictions, side by side.


We hope you join us for the wonderful event! See you November 6th!
