Fresno Metro Ministry is Building Partnerships for Community Well-Being.

Since 1970, Fresno Metro Ministry has actively advocated for the health and well-being of our community.  Join us in in honoring our 45-year history of community action, as we enter a new era of “Learning, Connecting and Engaging to Achieve Healthy People and Healthy Places.”   

Serving as a community “convener” is a fundamental part of our history, and our future, as we build partnerships across all identities, traditions and boundaries.  Today, we pay homage to this meaningful history by facilitating new results-oriented partnerships among communities, businesses and institutions that will measurably increase resilience, health and prosperity in our region.  Our efforts are aimed at positively impacting conditions and opportunities for the diversity of people who live and work in Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley.
