The Health Trust Family Resource Centers - Region 2

About

The Health Trust is an operating foundation founded in 1996. Our mission is to build health equity in Silicon Valley. We believe everyone in our community should have the opportunity to be as healthy as possible, especially the most vulnerable. To that end, we provide direct services, fund community-based organizations whose work aligns with our mission, and advocate for policies and initiatives that help advance our mission. To learn more, please visit healthtrust.org.

One of the direct services we offer are The Health Trust Family Resource Centers, funded by First 5 Santa Clara County’s Learning Together Initiative and operated in partnership with Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County and SJB Child Development Centers. Our centers offer free programs and services designed to strengthen families and promote literacy, proper nutrition, physical activity and skills that growing children need to be ready to succeed in kindergarten.
