Young & Healthy
Young & Healthy’s MISSION
To provide access to high-quality health care for uninsured and underserved children and families, to improve the quality of life for all children in the greater Pasadena area through prevention, education and enhanced health care services.
Young & Healthy is based on the two-fold conviction that every child should have access to quality health care regardless of their family’s income, and that giving a child early and consistent medical attention is an investment in the future of the community. Young & Healthy’s program arranges free medical, dental, and psychological services for low-income, uninsured children in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena and Sierra Madre. Generous volunteer physicians, dentists, therapists, optometrists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals treat the children Young & Healthy refers to them free of charge in their own offices. They have proven that if enough people volunteer their services, a community can make a substantial difference in the lives of its children.
