Healthy Starts Here
Coconino County Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is a partner in the AZ Health Zone (AZHZ) and collaborates with many public and private organizations to shape food consumption in a positive way, promote health through policy initiatives, and reduce disease through programs offered to food stamp eligible residents of our county.
