Our mission  
To serve residents through transformative services that reduce disparities, eliminate inequities, and create opportunity for all.
Our vision  
A community where all people are healthy, all people are valued, and all people thrive.
Our commitment to disparity reduction  

The county recognizes the adverse consequences of disparities among us and supports disparity reduction among our residents. 


The work of Hennepin County focuses on the people in its communities. It is committed to its residents achieving positive outcomes in these defined domains: Education, Employment, Health, Housing, Income, Justice, and Transportation. 


This graphic illustrates seven disparities we can affect and how they are all connected in some way. Reducing any individual disparity can leverage positive change and help reduce disparities in other areas. If one gear turns, they all move.
