Since its beginnings, HHF has developed strong connections with both formal health system partners and community partners to ensure the integration of HHF health services with the delivery of other social services outside of HHF, thus improving patient care through the provision of timely services, appropriate referrals, and the delivery of seamless care.
Grounded in a sustainable community development approach, HHF’s services and programs are tailored to the needs of the local community, and build on their assets and skills. HHF’s enhances the basic existing community infrastructure, supporting the delivery of a range of community-based services and other responses to health-related community concerns thus increasing the capacity of communities to improve community and individual health outcomes, reduce health disparities, lower infant and maternal mortality, and reduce the impact of chronic disease.
Our Impact Areas
Happy Houses Built
HHF has been providing housing for vulnerable families and the homeless. Often, large families live together in small, rickety shacks of cardboard, tin, rags, and straw with dirt floors severely impacting the health of all those who reside within.
Our Happy House Program replaces these shacks with concrete block buildings with a cement floor, a tin roof, windows, and much more.
Goats Distributed Per Year
Often people ask if a goat can improve the life of a family. The answer is yes. Goats are easy to breed, provide a small income, and can be used as a nutritious source of protein. For a gift of $150, you not only provide a goat; but when a family breeds and sells the goats, they can pay for necessary expenses such as their children’s school, books, rent and food supplies.
Count on HHF for life-saving care.
