Howard's Healthy Choices (HHC) is a social service agency centrally located in Trenton, NJ and has been in operations since 2011. Annually, we serve through our afterschool and summer programs 60 students, to create an intimate learning environment for students, different then their overcrowded classrooms.
Our drop-in services for the entire community on average, addresses the needs of another 70 or more persons. We also partner with several different programs to provide services like grief and bereavement groups; a girl's empowerment group; young boy's mentoring program, physical exercise and nutrition group; and a young adult's preparation for construction training program. Through these partnerships, these programs are facilitated at our site, allowing us to serve another 100 residents of the City of Trenton.
HHC also offers 6 or more community events a year to support the building of families and the enhancement of our communities, this increases our service levels by another 300-500 persons. Through our working relationship with the public schools, HHC has found success with improving the academic performance of students we serve, as reported by parents, students, and teachers, while being documented by school report cards.
