the project

H.E.A.L.T.H for Youths, Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit formed for the charitable and educational purposes of assisting youth. We strive to combat community deterioration, improve the quality of education, health care, and life-skills training offered to adolescence and young adults.  

Several years ago we partnered with the NYC Parks Department to convert a bocce court in Staten Island, NY into a community garden. That community garden has flourished in the community and we are now planning to expand the garden.
