What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Not all families can put health first. California is golden in man ways, but is not without its challenges. It's expensive to live here. Many families work multiple jobs to make rent. Others have transportation struggles or are burdened by caring for elderly parents. So, attending to a possible healthcare need of a child, if it's not life threatening, may not be at the top of the list. But these are often issues that don't go away and can turn into larger problems. We need a resource for parents that not only helps them learn how to raise health kids, but makes sure they can understand health challenges so that their children get the care they need to thrive socially and academically.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

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.

Each of our programs are designed and implemented with this goal in mind. Healthier Kids Foundation successfully partners with community-based organizations, public entities, and public school systems to: (a) provide health screenings (hearing, oral health, and vision) to low-income children; (b) connect parents to the appropriate preventative and intervention health services based on the outcome of their children's screening results; (c) identify uninsured children and assist their parents with enrolling them into subsidized health coverage; and (d) provide healthy lifestyle education to parents and caregivers that help to prevent and reduce childhood and adolescent obesity. These strategies allow us to systematically work toward our goal of all children having equal access to quality health care that is needed to thrive.

In the past three years, HKF has connected with over 900 sites throughout Santa Clara County to deliver 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. Reaching children and families where they already are is the best way to provide services to the families who may be falling through the cracks and do not have access to, or are not receiving quality health care.

Healthier Kids Foundation uses SalesForce as a database for data collection. SalesForce allows us to track our progress so that we know where we are in terms of our goal. We collect information for each child, and parent served. Data collected reflects valuable information on families served like language preferences, location, and other health access indicators. SalesForce allows us to quantify the impact we are having on the community and indicates which communities have high needs.

Since the inception of each program, HKF has:<br/><br/>Visited 9,800 mothers in three participating hospitals and assisted with the enrollment of 9,500 newborns into Medi-Cal (Baby Gateway Program);<br/><br/>Identified 5,000 uninsured children and assisted them with enrolling into subsidized health coverage (Community Outreach Program);<br/><br/>Screened 76,000 children for vision issues (VisionFirst Program), 35,000 for oral health issues (DentalFirst Program), and 23,000 for hearing issues (HearingFirst); and<br/><br/>Delivered healthy lifestyle parenting education to 7,700 parents and caregivers (10 Steps to a Healthier You Program).
