Healthier Kids Foundation is a family forward health agency that gives children and those who love them the education and cutting edge tools they rightfully deserve to live a healthy life. At Healthier Kids Foundation, we believe preventative care at an early age makes things fair.
Every day, we work side-by-side with families to identify and eliminate kids’ health issues before they even begin. Because without us, barriers that could be corrected may stand in the way of kids joyfully climbing the ladder of life.
“The success of HKF is vital because the children we serve today will be the future of tomorrow. What we do is so important – we are instilling healthy, preemptive habits into those that can pass it on for generations to come.”
HKF successfully partners with community-based organizations, public entities, and public school systems (Head Start and state preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, and secondary schools) to:
- Provide health screenings (hearing, oral health, and vision) to low-income children and connect parents to the appropriate preventative and intervention health services based on the outcome of their children’s screening results;
- Identify uninsured children and assist their parents with enrolling them into subsidized health coverage;
- Provide healthy lifestyle education to parents and caregivers that help to prevent and reduce childhood and adolescent obesity.
In the past three years, HKF has connected with over 900 sites throughout Santa Clara County to deliver these services to large populations of children where they naturally gather as a means of connecting them to preventive health services that contribute to their health, well-being, and educational outcomes.
