Health and Advocacy
The Children’s Collective Inc (TCCI) promotes Health and Wellness through sports and leisure programs designed for children, youth and adults. The Rita Walters Learning Complex provides structured and unstructured team and individual recreational activities for the community. Aerobics classes, yoga classes, pick up games, open court activities, youth and adult basketball leagues and volleyball are among its offerings to keep the community fit. TCCI also promotes Health through nutritious meals it serves to children and youth every day. Prepared in TCCI’s kitchens, these meals emphasize fresh fruit and vegetables, with limited salt and saturated fats. Annually, TCCI serves more than 225,000 breakfasts, lunches and snacks to children enrolled in its programs. Finally, TCCI promotes Health and Wellness through its Health Fairs, where community residents receive immunizations, screenings and treatment from mobile vans provided by community health care providers.
