Our Programs

Our main outreach programs, The Shelton Project and LifeChance Program, are governed by the seven core pillars used to supply life skills to children, teens, and women.

The Shelton Project 

The Shelton Project is our outreach program designed to impact the community of Port Antonio, Jamaica. It started as a medical mission in 2002, during which, HLN sourced medical volunteers who provided free healthcare, medications, cardiovascular screenings, glucometers and blood pressure machines to adults and children in need. Since then, the program continues to make tremendous impact on many lives focusing on the nutrition, environment, education, and the wellbeing and safety of the women and children in Port Antonio, Jamaica. 

Environment- HLN believe that it is important to actively teach environmental stewardship of the land. HLN explains the importance of going green by encouraging successful ways to conserve energy, recycle and teach life skills such as planting and maintain trees, vegetables and flowers. The town of Port Antonio, Jamaica is close to the ocean, as such, we educate and encourage volunteer opportunities to protect the ocean and preserve the marine lifeforms in its ecosystem.

Nutrition- The children and adults learn healthy food choices and learn to eat from the land by eating the vegetables they plant.

Education- HLN believe in the importance of education and wanted to provide schools in the community with books to create a library. Having access to a library in the schools would allow for opportunities for children to read and learn before, during and after school hours. 

Physical Activity/Entrepreneurship- Every summer HLN hosts what is known as Shelton Project Camp. During this weeklong program, children engage in sports, arts and crafts using recycled material and team building exercise. On the last day students participate in a performing arts show, displaying their various talents. Parents also have an opportunity to participate in specific activities focused on entrepreneurship skills and life skills that they can use to earn income.

Child Sexual Abuse and Human Trafficking- In the month of March HLN hosts the Stand Up for Children Conference, which brings awareness to sexual assault on children and human trafficking.
