HHFs soccer program gets props from ESPN

ESPN just ran this nice article about our girl's soccer & responsible sexuality program. The nurse who coordinates the program is named Marc Antoine, a soft-spoken guy who makes a great effort at outreach and inclusion.

I'm not getting into many details, but I can assure you that anyone in Cheshire would be shocked at how little is known by most country girls here. It is a reality that some girls are unaware of their pregnancy until they start to obviously show in their third trimester. Things have improved in our region, but awareness is still too low... and it's abysmally low in the areas beyond our region. But as our founder, Jerry Lowney, says... "We just help one person at a time."
