Our Vision

Our work will increase resources, enable policy and advocacy efforts, and expand innovative and essential programs throughout the Americas. This will be accomplished without government funding. 

Our Challenges...

A scan of the environment shows that unmet needs in underserved communities throughout the Americas are increasing while resources are decreasing. Additionally,

  • Culture is a factor that is often dismissed;

  • Short term metrics do not measure the effects of interventions that have longer term effects;

  • We do not accept funds from tobacco, alcohol, or sugar sweetened beverage companies;

  • Corporations increasingly target funding to support their products rather than an overall mission of health and wellness;

  • General support is scarce; and,

  • At a time of great immediate needs, raising endowment funds is seen as less desirable by potential donors.
