Health status and related health behaviors are determined by influences at multiple levels: personal, environmental, organizational/institutional, and policy. – Healthy People 2020
The Pallottine Foundation of Huntington views health as a whole person issue involving an individual’s behavioral, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual health. Because of these interrelationships, we believe educational and community-based programs will yield better health outcomes if they are designed with a broad view of what impacts a person’s health.
In addition to our core priorities of food insecurity, mental and behavioral health, substance use disorder, and tobacco use prevention and cessation, the Foundation supports programs and services that address a wide variety of health-related challenges in our communities.
This support may include, but is not limited to:
- Chronic Disease Management
- Domestic Violence Services
- Mental and Behavioral Health Services
- Obesity Prevention, Nutrition, and Physical Activity
- Older Adult Services
- Oral Healthcare Services
- Prenatal and Early Childhood Services
- Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Education
