Mission Statement

Project LINK mission is to provide equitable approaches to education, mental wellness, and healthy choices for children and their families.

Description

Project LINK is a community organization dedicated to the families in the Tampa Bay region. We assist our program participants by enhancing their academic experiences, providing healthcare access points for school required immunizations, school physicals, and shot records updates; providing access to behavioral health services for disadvantage families, and facilitating educational training/workshops to advance the quality of life for families. Our objective is to contribute to families becoming healthier, safe, informed, and active members in their process. We are not safe until we are ALL safe. We are not well until we are ALL well. Our initiative is to raise awareness levels of the pervasiveness of inequities in health, build empathy and support for addressing inequities, enhance the capacity of individuals to actively participate in intervention efforts and implement large scale efforts to reduce racial prejudice, ideologies, and stereotypes in the larger culture that undergird policy preferences that initiate and sustain inequities. We strive to strengthen and support families by "meeting them where they are", aiding in the re-discovering of talents. We utilize the gifts already present, and inject compassion, genuine interest, and direction for positive outcomes. "Our futures are not just determined by our prayers - our futures are also determined by our planting. That's why we are in the planting business- sowing and reaping" Tina Young, CEO

I had the pleasure of doing a volunteer with Projectlink and Kaboom. My son and I loved volunteering. The event was organized and a great group of people attended. I would volunteer for ProjectLink again!
