Young & Healthy, a Pasadena-based 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 1990 to provide comprehensive health care to low-income school children throughout greater Pasadena who lack or have inadequate health insurance. Young & Healthy maintains a network of 350 physicians, dentists, mental health and other professional health providers who volunteer their services to the program. Our in-house case management staff members provide client screening and follow-up services and act as advocate-liaisons between clients and the medical laboratories, pharmacies, hospitals and other agencies necessary to a child’s treatment. Over 260 active community volunteers support Young & Healthy through the provision of countless programmatic, organizational and fundraising tasks.
Young & Healthy offers a broad array of health services, including Medical Care, Pharmacy and Laboratory, Dental Care, Mental Health Care, Access to care – Insurance Outreach, and Health Education.
Since 1990, we have provided donated professional services valued at nearly $19,927,307 to over 4,000 local children in need. Young & Healthy’ s impact over a twenty-six-year period sends a strong message to the entire community and beyond: In Pasadena, every child matters.
