Health & Human Resource Education Center
The Health and Human Resource Education Center (HHREC) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization governed by a multi-ethnic Board of Directors. HHREC is committed to creating healthy communities by improving the overall health and quality of life of Bay Area residents by reducing the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and eliminating racism and violence of all kinds. HHREC contracts with Alameda County Department’s Behavioral Health Care Services and Public Health, as well as a host of other funding partners to plan and implement a variety of health promotion, substance abuse and mental health prevention programs and community leadership opportunities.
HHREC blends health, art, media, and local community voices to create a community-based prevention and early intervention strategy that addresses collective physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. All programs engage local residents (children, youth, adults and elders), consumers, family members and service providers to organize, design and plan program activities.
