Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc. is a faith-based 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2005 in direct response to Walton and Okaloosa County's large population of low income families who are unable to access high quality health services due to the unavailability (or inadequacy) of insurance. The mission of CVHN is to improve the health and well-being of children in need. CVHN strives towards this mission by utilizing a network of over 95 local volunteer physicians, dentists and other healthcare providers. CVHN also operates the 'Just for Grins' Mobile Dental Clinic that visits local elementary schools and other non-profits, and the CVHN Dental Clinic in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. All services are free to kids enrolled in school in Walton and Okaloosa Counties who are on the free or reduced lunch programs. CVHN has facilitated more than 68,000 free procedures since inception. Over $5 million in free health services has been provided to our community.
WaterColor is nestled between Grayton Beach State Park, Western Lake and Seagrove Beach, and wraps around the neighboring town of Seaside. Watercolor is one of a handful of planned “New Urban” communities that define Scenic 30A. The picturesque neighborhoods and storefronts integrate with our beautiful natural landscape. Elegant cottages line the beach next to the stately WaterColor Inn, and residential streets fan out into the beautiful coastal forest of oaks, pines, magnolias, cypress and palmetto.
The Town Center extends north and south of Scenic 30A. It's a lively area that hosts all types of events, from art shows, to wine tastings, to kid-centered fun. Here, you can rent a bike, visit a gallery, do some shopping or grab a delicious meal. Landmarks: WaterColor Inn and Fish Out of Water overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Town Center, Western Lake BoatHouse, The LakeHouse, Cerulean Park, Marina Park, trails and footbridges.
