  •  Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) works with partners around the region to make it safer and easier for people to be physically active. Active transportation - or human powered travel, like walking and biking - helps people meet daily physical activity recommendations.

  • Age-related changes, disabilities, and chronic health conditions may make it difficult to go grocery shopping, especially in rural locations and for people with a low income. The Coalition for Quality Aging (CQA), which works to improve the quality of aging for older adults in Lorain County, identified this barrier and worked to find solutions. CQA partners at Oberlin Community Services (OCS) proposed to test out a food delivery service for people in southern Lorain County who can’t get to the store due to disability or age-related challenges.
