Through our direct services model, Healthy Families provides both community- and school-based services. We offer support in the following areas: graduating high school and accessing post-secondary education; giving birth to a healthy baby; establishing healthy, supportive relationships; preventing and delaying additional pregnancies; finding safe, secure, and stable housing, and preparing for the workforce.
The Black Girls' & Young Women's Collective
At The Black Girls' & Young Women's Collective, we know we can bridge the gaps Black girls confront—but only when the girls set the course. With a forum to share their challenges, ideas, and hopes, Black girls and young women can express, openly and fully, what they’re facing and what they need. As we listen, we learn how to support them.
Advocacy, Public Policy, and Information
Advocacy, public policy, and information (API) helps dismantle the systemic (and systematic) forces disproportionately impacting Black youth. By addressing the social, physical, and economic conditions—social determinants of health--that impact the well-being of our primary constituents, The Center captures relevant data and evidence, and promotes capacity-building and action to close these gaps and lessen the disparities.
