Our Programs

African American Health Disparities
Healthy House has established a Steering Committee that consists of different organizations in the community partnering together to meet, publicize, coordinate available resources, and monitor implementation of activities that address maternal/child health disparities in the African American community. The Committee meets every four months to evaluate its progress.

Healthy Retail
Its primary goal is to promote good health by encouraging people in the community to eat fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer. We visit an Asian store in Merced County at least once a week to distribute beautiful and colorful recipe books with healthy and affordable recipes to remind people that a healthy diet is a very important factor to a long and healthy life.

Hmong Health Collaborative
Is composed of nine Hmong and refugee serving nonprofit organizations in the Central Valley (including Healthy House), from Fresno to Sacramento, which advocate on behalf of Southeast Asian community members.
