Live Well Sioux Falls is a community-based initiative designed to help improve the health and well-being of Sioux Falls residents by collaborating on projects to address health needs.
The Live Well Sioux Falls Coalition, a group of diverse businesses, organizations and individuals, is instrumental in guiding our efforts to improve community health and wellness.
This publication summarizes information about the health and well-being of the residents of Sioux Falls and presents strategies for providing a healthier community. It is intended to guide the efforts of the many programs and services currently provided in our community as well as inspire new programs that focus on the most critical needs of Sioux Falls residents.
Why is this work important?

Live Well Sioux Falls is truly a community-wide effort to make the healthy choice the easy choice for residents and visitors. We are grateful to the many organizations that have generously supported our efforts by offering volunteer leadership, financial sponsorship and other resources.
