We believe healthy, well people are the core driver of thriving families, strong economies, and the Greater Green Bay community.
However, this is not a reality experienced by everyone. Wello is a community-based non-profit working to improve the health and well-being of all in Greater Green Bay. By coming together and investing in strategies that support health and well-being our people, places, and economies will thrive and brand Greater Green Bay as a location of choice for employees, families, and businesses.
Our individual health and well-being is largely determined by the community we live in.
Our zip code is a greater predictor of our health and life expectancy than our genetic code. Up to 80% of what makes us healthy and well is determined in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, places or worship and jobs. It is influenced by our policies and our community structures. By improving our community, we can directly improve the health of its residents.
We turn ideas into positive outcomes.

The Greater Green Bay Community
Our work and initiatives support communities within and surrounding the City of Green Bay and throughout Brown County, Wisconsin. From urban to rural, bikes to food, we strive to improve the health and well-being of every neighborhood, every sector, and every person.
Measuring well-being to help Greater Green Bay thrive.
We believe that data and up-to-date metrics play a large role in crafting solutions that create lasting change. Wello’s daily mission is to improve overall community health and well-being. To track our progress, we are implementing a countywide measurement tool that will capture how actual people in Greater Green Bay feel about their lives.
