Who We Serve

Our programs target underserved communities which include but are not limited to communities of color and specific age groups.
Voices from the Community

Ms. Jones, a senior citizen living in Philadelphia, participates in a variety of nutrition activities, like group classes and cooking demonstrations, at Jouney’s Way, a local senior center. Recently, Ms. Jones had noticed her weight was increasing. She was concerned about her recent weight gain, and decided to schedule an individual appointment to meet with the nutrition educator at Journey’s Way. During the nutrition session, Ms. Jones learned about My Plate and how this method could be used to create a healthy meal plan.  Ms. Jones decided to set some goals for herself to help her manage her weight. Working together with the nutrition educator, Ms. Jones decided on three goals that would be realistic for her to include into her lifestyle. Ms. Jones set out to eat smaller portions; become mindful of evening snacking and limiting snack to no later than 8 o’clock; and increase her physical activity. She left the session with the tools necessary to help her stick to her goals, and the confidence needed to achieve those goals. Within three days of the session, Ms. Jones was enjoying her new habits and already had lost one pound!

HPC strives to achieve health equity for all. Because of that goal, we primarily serve low-income communities that are disproportionately impacted by chronic diseases or which may suffer from environmental and behavioral risk factors that can lead to the development of chronic diseases.
