Stephanie: When Your Support Worker Becomes Your Best Gift

Stephanie was 28 weeks along with her second baby when she noticed that she was bleeding. All her instincts told her something was wrong. Her doctors diagnosed her with a medical condition that put her and her baby’s life at risk. Just days later, she found out she was laid off from her job. A call from Jasminda Rodriquez, a Family Support Specialist with Public Health Solutions’ Healthy Families Bushwick home-visiting program turned out to be a life-saver.

Kyla: Any Little Thing Can Make A Big Difference

Public Health Solutions’ NYC Smoke-Free Reality Check Program is a student-led, adult-supported, statewide program for youth between the ages of 13 through 18 to address tobacco control initiatives. This program cultivates teens as leaders and encourages them to involve community members in fighting against big tobacco. Kyla is one of the active participants on the legislative team that engages legislators to demand support in reducing tobacco use. Kyla shared her story and left her message: any little thing can make a big difference.
