The Houston Health Foundation works to address critical public health needs impacting the Houston region’s most underserved families and children. The Houston Health Foundation creates public-private partnerships for sustainable health and wellness initiatives and programs in our communities.
This work aims to identify and address current gaps and factors influencing COVID-19-related health disparities. Under this strategy, key partners will broadly address health disparities and inequities related to COVID-19 within targeted zones, addressing and, as necessary, dispelling misinformation and barriers to mitigation practices due to mistrust.
Our programming provides oral health care through Project Saving Smiles, vision screening and eye wear through See to Succeed, improving outcomes and reducing opportunity gaps for boys and young men of color through My Brother's Keeper Houston, access to fresh produce and nutrition education with our Community Nutrition Program. We also play a key role in ensuring families receive the support services they need to create safe and healthy environments for children living in the Houston region.
