Maryvale on the Move

Guiding Principles

Our commitment is to build momentum for sustained, healthy community change that:

  • Is rooted in and led by the community.
  • Focuses on where we live, work, and play – such as neighborhoods, parks, and markets – and on existing policies in order to create and protect environments that make healthy eating and active living possible for current and future generations.
  • Recognizes that each person has assets and gifts and seeks to develop new leadership.
  • Understands the importance of the development of the whole person and addresses the issues that affect well-being.
  • Promotes communication and participation of people from different neighborhoods, cultures, and generations.
  • Supports fairness, justice, and equal access to the resources essential for good health.
  • Develops public, private, and community partnerships to share resources and meet common goals.
