By making life
easy to track,
helps youth take
charge of their
HealthShack was designed in 2009 with the help of Youth Ambassadors who know exactly what it’s like to start taking charge of your life. Healthshack is named for an actual shack at Wind Youth Services in Sacramento, CA, where youth can go to receive sound advice and other basic things they need.
We help youth by providing a safe and simple-to-use site where you can store the personal information you want such as your medical record, social security card, school transcript, and housing history. Records like these are easy to lose, yet so important when it comes to things like check-ups, job interviews, and finding a place to live.
We make life easy to track.
HealthShack is a
