Our Approach

HHA works directly with public schools, community based organizations (CBO's) and faith-based organizations (FBO's) – collectively called our Education Partners (EP’s), to implement our Whole Child Development curriculum within their existing program infrastructure.


HHA seeks contributions from private and public grants, corporations, and individual donors who are committed to the development of the WHOLE CHILD.      Funding from these organizations and individuals are used to underwrite implementing our whole child curriculum within HHA’s Education Partners.

Recipient Selection Process

Each spring, HHA will select new EP’s to be served the following academic year. The number of organizations that can be served will be based on the amount of funding/donations HHA has received for that school year. Schools, CBO's and FBO's interested in being considered for our Educational Partnership Program will need to submit their grant application to HHA prior to March 31st. The number of grants being awarded and the grant recipients will be identified by June 30th and the implementation with the EP’s will be scheduled to start the following school year.
