All Kids Thrive

Trenton Health Team received a five-year $300,000 grant in 2018 through the Princeton Area Community Foundation All Kids Thrive initiative, dedicated to transforming the lives of young people living in poverty.

Our goal was to reduce chronic absenteeism interfering with student learning and development.  

By partnering with Trenton Public Schools, THT matched electronic medical records in the Trenton Health Information Exchange (HIE) with school records to identify links between school absences and health conditions.

Once those links were identified, THT connected students with the care and services they needed to attend school regularly.

For chronically absent students with asthma, THT partnered with Henry J. Austin Health Center to address access to care and medication. THT also partnered with Isles to offer students and their families home health assessments.  

This project reflected the importance of the partnerships THT built across sectors to pool resources for improving the health and well-being of our Trenton community.
