Hello!

I’m Jessica and this is HealthShack™, the place to keep life records – everything from your birth certificate to social security card to medical history. It’s a secure and simple-to-use site developed for youth like us, by youth like us, to store documents that are super important, yet easy to lose.

future.

/About

 

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.

/Features

On HealthShack, you can store your personal history in one safe spot — like a virtual filing cabinet.

We started with health records. Then we expanded to other life documents and accomplishments such as school transcripts, identification, and housing history.

You choose what information you want to keep on the site, plus control who can see it.
