Who We Help

Losing weight, gaining confidence

A 12-year-old boy is beating the childhood obesity epidemic. In the Pediatric Weight Management Program, he is increasing physical activity and making healthier food choices. In six months, he lost 12 pounds and has maintained that loss through his growth spurt. With success, his natural humor and lively personality began to shine.

Connecting families to services

The school clinics are able to connect families with services they need. When a 14-year-old boy came to our clinic for eye pain and loss of vision, we found a severe eye infection. Urgent surgery saved the eye. Seeing the general poor condition of the boy, we also arranged for Public Health to check on the family. Now they are receiving food assistance and other services.
