Kidshape - PinnacleHealth’s KidShape, a weight management program for overweight children and their parents, will host classes on the East and West Shores. KidShape, which is sponsored by the Highmark Foundation, meets once a week over nine weeks and is a fun-filled program that helps overweight children (ages 6-14), accompanied by a parent or guardian, to become healthy.
Cribs for Kids - The Cribs for Kids program provides cribs to patients and families within the health system as providers identify needs, which could include infants from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the pediatric clinic, home visits from NFP and other areas. PNC’s gift will enable PinnacleHealth to reach people within the community with this need and increase the safety and health of infants.
PinnacleHealth SMILES - Approximately five years ago, several members of the Harrisburg Area Dental Society (HADS) began meeting informally to discuss the need for dental care for uninsured patients in the community. Using Project Access, the national model for serving the uninsured/underinsured population with urgent dental needs, these dentists established Harrisburg Smiles, a network of dental providers with a goal of increasing access to care and dental resources.

Nurse Family Partnership - Some low-income, first-time mothers require extra help and support during their pregnancies and the first years of their child’s life.

This voluntary program provides guidance to help ensure the health and well-being of both mother and baby.
