STROUDSBURG - Pocono Alliance received $21,000 from AllOne Charities for the Healthy Start Screening Program. The Healthy Start Screening Program provides vision, hearing and developmental screenings for children 5 years and under in Monroe County. The funding received by AllOne Charities allowed Pocono Alliance to provide 400 screenings at child care facilities, school literacy nights, kindergarten registrations and at local libraries.

"The funding that we received from AllOne Charities helped us increase our reach into the community for Healthy Start Screenings,” Pocono Alliance Executive Director Michael Tukeva said. “We are grateful for their commitment to improving the health and wellness of Monroe County’s children."

Pocono Alliance programs focus on self-sufficiency, healthy living and child and family development.  visit www.PoconoAlliance.org.
