The Health Education Literacy Project (HELP) works directly with 200 parents/caregivers and their infant/toddler/pre-school age children in a targeted effort to improve health outcomes for children and families of immigrants in Camden. The HELP initiative is a health literacy program designed to improve health outcomes for young children of immigrant families whose adult members have limited English proficiency and tend to have low levels of formal education in their native language. It is delivered through a Health Literacy Curriculum with immigrant families of young children attending local day care centers. Project partners include the LEAP Academy University Charter School, LEAP Health Center/HOP Clinic, Respond Inc., Broadway Family Center, Mi Casita Day Care Center an El Centro Communal Borincano preschool.
