How Does SHC Help?
9% of N.J. residents have been diagnosed with diabetes and hundreds more are undiagnosed.
SHC’s Food, Health, Hope: An Answer to Diabetes works to identify food pantry clients who have pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, or obesity, providing them access to health care they may not otherwise have.
More than 75% of our national health care spending is for people with chronic conditions.
Since 2017, SHC has taken its mobile unit into underserved counties in New Jersey, to provide more than 31,000 free health screenings and education for children and adults, with a focus on detecting pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and asthma.
1 in 4 teens in the US has missed class due to lack of access to period supplies.
The Fresh Start Initiative prevents period poverty by putting pads, tampons, and hygiene products in the hands of girls and women who need them.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and worldwide.
Through the Enright Skin Cancer Program, we are transforming how young people learn about sun safety with online resources – including the interactive Enright Sun Safety Certification™ program, educational presentations, and onsite events.
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their lifetimes. It is the second leading cause of death in New Jersey and the United States.
The Comfort Project provides support, resources, and programs to allow cancer patients and their families to maintain their emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being throughout treatment, increasing quality of life and chances of survival.
