It’s all about the Teens!
Teen Fit for 2019

Due to the overwhelming response we had last year for Teen Fit we have increased the number of children allowed to participate in the Teen Fit program this year 2019 to 100 teens.

Please note you need to register your child. Each child gets an exercise mat and a water bottle to keep at the end of the session. If for some reason, your teen cannot attend a couple of classes due to prior commitments your child can still participate in the program just keep us informed.

Teen Fit is a summer fun event for teens. The course is free.

Ages 11-18 years

Del Rio middle school gymnasium has agreed to host the event.

The classes are held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 3.30 pm, June 10 to August 9, 2019.

Teens learn how to eat responsibly and learn cool exercises like cross fit, yoga and Zumba.

Nutrition classes - educate teens on choosing healthy options, teens will learn to make healthy smoothies,
healthy snacks and go on a HEB tour.

If you have, any questions please email me at and my telephone number is 830 778 3670.

Parents please note that one third of all children in the US are overweight or obese.
Even if your child is not obese, they can still learn lifelong healthy habits!

Community Development Initiatives

Community Development Initiatives collaborated with numerous agencies and community-based organizations in 2015 to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment. This project sought to identify and prioritize health needs of vulnerable, low-income populations in a 20-county region of West Texas.

They collected and analyzed health data, invited leaders from the communities to help prioritize identified needs, and synthesized the findings and key informant feedback into reports for each of the 20 counties, as well as a comprehensive report for the 20-county region.

They have created web pages to host each of the reports mentioned above, as well as asset and thematic maps of health resources. They envision communities will use these documents and maps to inform strategic planning and related efforts.
