Every community has needs, aside from the much publicized needs; such as more retail outlets, better customer service, and a higher budget for road work, is many more subtle but even more important needs to address. I spoke with area Pediatricians to help identify some needs of area youth. It was stated that our community consists of many low-income families who struggle to provide basic necessities for their families. Also noted, were the large number of children coming from non-traditional families, often times leading to a non-structured environment. A child living in an environment such as this may be at a disadvantage due to poor sleeping and eating habits, further affecting social ability and academic performance. Lastly, the need for education emphasizing developing and maintaining healthy eating habits was unanimously stressed.
