Alliance Healthcare Foundation Announces Innovation Initiative Decision
Date:8/17/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2013

The Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) developed the Innovation Initiative (I2) in 2010 to advance its mission to improve the health and wellness of the 600,000+ people estimated to live in poverty in San Diego and Imperial Counties by supporting transformational thinking, people and organizations. AHF recognizes that with limited resources to meet the needs of our community, break through innovation is needed to make life better for those we aim to serve. Through I2, AHF seeks to alter the status quo by funding innovation designed to enhance the lives of those people most in need in our community. Consequently, AHF has and is willing to support models of “disruptive innovation” that challenge the way we define and think about health care.

After a highly competitive process, five innovative proposals were selected and presented by local organizations earlier this month. The finalists were: Access Youth Academy, Community Clinics Health Network, St. Paul ‘s Episcopal Home, UC San Diego, and a collaboration of North County Lifeline, San Diego Youth Services, South Bay Community Services and SAY San Diego. AHF is announcing its decision to support Access Youth Academy in the expansion of its successful program to the Hoover High School campus in City Heights. The key goal of this program is to break the destructive cycle of educational failure, poverty and ill health, and establish the positive cycle of educational achievement leading to employment and good health for future generations. The four pillars of the AYA program--health and wellness, leadership, community service, and academic enrichment--will not only impact the lives of the AYA students, but also the community for years to come.

The Access Youth Academy (AYA) program applies a youth development strategy to improve key determinants of health for children who would not otherwise be expected to attend college or
