BENEFITING: HEALTHY YOU INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 21, 2015
Healthy You would like to establish a women's health fund for the clients of Healthy You. Each month, Healthy You has an average caseload of 60 women. The average cost per woman to receive the services she needs is $600. Formerly incarcerated women have specialized needs. Most are smokers, which can lead to numerous problems. Many develop diabetes while incarcerated due to unhealthy diets. With prevention and treatment, these women are more likely to make a successful reentry into society.
At the heart of Healthy You lies the message that all people have value regardless of their situation. By strengthening the bonds of love between family members, Healthy You strengthens the fibers of the community.
