Helping youth and families address health and wellbeing
Many Latino youth and families in our community face challenges related to family reunification, low income, limited English proficiency, and low education levels.
Latino Health Initiative (LHI) partners with Identity, Inc. to deliver health and wellness programs for high-risk Latino youth and their families.
In addition to curriculum-based activities, these wellness programs include an emphasis on physical activity and leadership in order to promote positive health behaviors and support active community participation that empowers families and communities.
Youth and families participating in these wellness programs may benefit from the following program features:
- Case management services
- Curriculum based group interventions
- Comprehensive individual and family-level assessments
- Individual wellness plans
- Leadership training
“I have changed a lot because of the program. Its helped me improve my grades, shown me how to work well with others, to be responsible and get along with others.”
