Our Mission

GAVA organizes and mobilizes community power to reduce barriers to health while increasing institutional capacity to respond to the people most impacted by historic inequities.


Our Vision

We envision a future in which zip codes no longer serve as predictors of health outcomes, and in which all Austinites in the Eastern Crescent - regardless of income, ethnicity, primary language, or immigration status - have access to healthy food and active living in their neighborhoods.
