Healthy Communities

The health of our community is made up of the health of individuals. Your health is important.

The Healthy Neighborhoods Program seeks to prevent housing-related illness and injury. In-home assessments and intervention are available for air quality, fire safety, lead, and other hazards.

Columbia County has Medication Drop Boxes to help prevent overdoses, whether through abuse or accident. There are support services for people who feel suicidal or suspect someone they know may feel suicidal. We also offer immunization clinics and a Migrant Worker Health Program.

We hope you will reach out to us with any of your health concerns or questions.

Children's Health

Our children are important and we would like to support you in promoting the healthiest possible start for your child’s life.

The Columbia County Department of Health offers several services for education and health assessments, starting in pregnancy. These services include lead poisoning prevention and early intervention for developmental delays. Support will continue for children with special health care needs until age 21.
