Health & Wellness
EQUITABLE ACCESS FOR HEALTH & WELLNESS
Poorer communities suffer from high concentrations of violence, persistent food deserts, and a lack of quality healthcare. Limited access to these basic necessities significantly impacts children’s health and well-being and correlates with low-income, trauma-pervaded communities throughout the country. Through PFF’s promotion and support of meaningful collaborations among their grantee partners, PFF envisions tackling identified health disparities in under-resourced communities by developing proven and innovative programs that will have an expediential impact for equitable and sustainable health and wellness.
As a PFF grantee partner, we are afforded the opportunity to situate ourselves as experts in the larger question of supporting norm change through and in research, education, policy, clinical care, and more – with the ultimate charge of fostering the development of healthy and safe children.
