Who We Serve
At its inception, H.E.A.L.T.H for Youths was created to help adolescence realize their full potential by improving education as well as their physical and mental health. To pilot our program, we worked with students from underserved communities on an individual basis.
In February 2011, H.E.A.L.T.H for Youths was the recipient of a New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON) technical andfinancial assistance grant. NYCON is a statewide, membership-based charitable nonprofit organization specializing in bringing nonprofits across New York the services and training they need to achieve their nonprofit missions and goals.
The grant and support from NYCON allowed our organization to go through an extensive strategic planning process in 2011. Wechanged our model to a service provider for other non-profits and this is the model we currently follow. It allows us to serve several thousand students a year.
