HEALTHY FUTURES was established as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation in 2006. Our mission is to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy among young adults in San Antonio and Texas.
We envision a community where (1) young people are empowered to make healthy, informed decisions about sex; (2) planned pregnancies are the social norm; (3) all parents are prepared for the challenge of parenthood; and (4) all children are wanted, cherished and cared for in a healthy environment.
Healthy Futures supports 3 projects:
(1) The Healthy Futures Alliance, a community coalition to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy. The Healthy Futures Alliance is people working together to empower teens, parents and young adults. This project is funded by a grant from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen & Unplanned Pregnancy.
(2) To disseminate BIG DECISIONS, a Texas-friendly “Abstinence-Plus” teen sexuality curriculum authored by Dr. Janet Realini.
(3) Educational sessions for teens, parents, and young adults using “Abstinence-Plus” sexuality education. This project is partially funded by a mini-grant from Baptist Health Foundation.
