The Whidbey Institute's Thriving Communities Initiative is an organic, whole systems approach that connects and supports informal leaders across and within communities through community gatherings, video storytelling, conferences, and projects. We’re in this together, and we know that our own strength is deeply rooted in the health and vitality of our South Whidbey and Cascadian communities.

At the 2014 conference, we premiered several short video documentaries—filmed by the Whidbey Institute—that demonstrate replicable examples of individuals and organizations doing exceptional work to impact community health in a manner which supports thriving. They include:

A local end-of-life care facility staffed by volunteers
A medical school whose mission focuses on the underserved in a very vulnerable community
A medical support fund supported by community investment
A co-op serving families in need of housing and healthcare.
