How you helpYoung & Healthy was established around the philosophy that if enough people volunteer their time and expertise, we can assist those in our community who are the most vulnerable and better the lives of everyone overall. Collectively we can make a difference for so many children and their families, and there are many ways to volunteer to support Young & Healthy.
About usYoung & Healthy is based on the two-fold conviction that every child should have access to quality health care, regardless of their family's income, and that giving a child early and consistent medical attention is an investment in the future of the community. Young & Healthy's program arranges free medical, dental, and psychological services for low income and underserved children in Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena and Sierra Madre. Generous volunteer physicians, dentists, therapists, optometrists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals treat the children Young & Healthy refers to them free of charge in their own offices. Young & Healthy has proven that if enough people volunteer their services, a community can make a substantial difference in the lives of its children.
