More About Our Company

What are we all about anyway?

Our community health status improvement initiative, Buffalo County Community Partners, is a county-wide effort located in central Nebraska. Kearney is the county seat and comprises 31,790 of the 46,102 people who live in Buffalo County. The county relies on agriculture, industry, and tourism to stimulate growth of the county. Buffalo County Community Partners was one of the first projects of its kind in Nebraska. Community Partners draws upon old-fashioned grassroots problem-solving, as well as looking to the latest in community architecture, to knit our community together into a creative, future-oriented, inviting place to live and work.

What are we trying to do?

Our mission is to assess, promote, and strengthen the health of Buffalo County.

Our vision is that everyone from all corners of Buffalo County work together to improve the quality of life of those who live in and work in this community.
