WHAT WE DO
I-Help Foundation works within communities to identify and advance solutions that remove stigmas, barriers; and promote health for all particularly the economically and socially disenfranchised. Research proved that one of the social determinants of health and disparities includes the environment in which people live. Social determinants can either assist or prove to be a barrier to one’s ability to make healthy decisions. I-Help Foundation is committed to addressing the root causes of health disparities by working in collaboration with communities local and abroad. We empower young people and adults to advocate for their health and identify needed changes in their neighborhoods. Then we help develop and support the community’s vision of health by cultivating partnerships to deliver programs and services that are empathetic and inclusive.
