It is the mission and purpose of Onslow County Health Department and Consolidated Human Services to deliver supportive social, economic, protective and health services that build better lives for individuals and families.
Our primary care practice provides complete and affordable, family-oriented care to children, adolescents, and adults throughout Eastern North Carolina.
The mission of the Onslow County Parks and Recreation Department is to enhance the quality of life of the citizens by offering a variety of both active and passive activities. This is accomplished through recreation programs, district parks, beach access facilities and an active partnership with the community.
Infinite Yoga & Wellness opened in October 2012 to create a supportive space where people can discover, explore, and expand their yoga practice. The studio began with the intention of exposing the community to yoga; an empowering practice that brings strength, balance, and healing into the lives of those who are curious, and committed enough to show up on the mat.
Public Radio East is a regional broadcast network that enriches people's lives in Eastern North Carolina.

The station serves as the primary public radio outlet for 17 counties of Eastern Central North Carolina.

As a nation and as a City, we are facing the reality that the health of our population is becoming the number one financial and social issue of our time. As an employer of over 550 staff, the City recognizes the importance of a trained work force. City services are delivered each day by individual employees. In order to meet the Mayor and Council’s goal of quality services to our citizens, it is essential to have a healthy work force. The City is proud to join with the Onslow Memorial Hospital in their efforts to address this social issue and commend them for their leadership.

Carobell has participated in Onslow Memorial Hospital’s Lighten Up Onslow Challenge for the past seven years and we’ve come to look forward to it each January. We are looking forward to the new #HealthyInOnslow Challenge. There are so many positives to the previous program it’s hard to mention them all. From the humorous team names to the friendly competition, to heightened staff morale and most importantly to raising health consciousness, it’s just all good for Carobell. Participating in the program has been a life changing experience for many Carobell staff who have continued their exercise programs and healthy eating habits long after the program ended. So let’s go, Onslow County. Choose to be a lighter, healthier you in 2019 and join the new #HealthyInOnslow Challenge.
The Onslow County Partnership for Children has been working to strengthen the system of care surrounding children and families in our community since 1998. We unite all sectors of the community toward the healthy development of its youngest citizens and toward the future prosperity of our community as a whole. Since 2011 we have participated in Shape NC – an initiative designed to increase the number of children arriving in kindergarten at a healthy weight through promoting healthy eating, outdoor learning environments that encourage active play and exploration, and child care policies and practices that promote and support health for staff, children, and families in child care centers and through our work with community stakeholders to promote awareness and work collaboratively on behalf of the improved health of children and families.
Lighten Up Onslow is important to our community – working together we can help families learn more about healthy eating, re-thinking their drinks, and becoming more active in Onslow.
The Jacksonville Onslow Chamber of Commerce has a 70 plus year tradition of doing what’s best for the business community.
