About Community Voices



West Virginia Community Voices was originally founded as one of thirteen partnerships serving as national demonstration projects of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to bring the voice of the community into the development of policies and programs to improve health and health care access for uninsured and underserved populations. At the conclusion of the project, Community Voices incorporated as a 501C3 organization to continue the important work that was begun through the Kellogg project.


The goals of West Virginia Community Voices, Inc. are to:

  • Improve community capacity to develop and access quality health and social services by mobilizing, promoting and supporting community action.
  • Promote policies that improve health care access for children and families.
  • Create the infrastructure to address the health status disparities between minority and white populations.
