The program objectives through this grant are to increase:
This grant will be incorporated throughout St. Helena Parish through the collaboration of community partners, including the St. Helena Parish school system, police jury, sheriff’s department, Turner Chapel A.M.E. Church, the Council on Aging and nursing home.
Healthy Living Week, Multicultural Food Week and a Health Fair are types of programs anticipated in this grant. Schools will incorporate the grant into health classes in which students are taught to practice a healthy lifestyle.
