What We Do

Healthy and Ready to Learn

Our Healthy and Ready to Learn initiative promotes student success by increasing access to health resources, promoting trauma sensitivity, and building positive school climates. We address health needs rooted in social, racial, and economic inequities by equipping communities with strategies and tools to promote a child’s health and well-being in schools.

We partner with communities using an approach that is strengths-based, whole-family oriented and equity-focused.


Healthy and Ready to Learn develops and delivers free professional development and parent workshop sessions to equip adults in the lives of children with the knowledge and skills to promote strong attendance, health, and trauma-sensitivity in schools and at home.
