Herbalife Family Foundation Launches 2nd Casa Herbalife Program in Australia

The Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF), a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to improving children's lives by helping organizations provide healthy nutrition to vulnerable children, recently opened its second Casa Herbalife program in Australia in partnership with Lighthouse Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending youth homelessness.

The new grant will support Lighthouse Foundation’s nutrition program, which teaches young people how to lead a healthy lifestyle through nutrition education and physical activity. Through this grant, HFF will assist Lighthouse Foundation in promoting health and wellness among homeless young people coming from backgrounds of long term neglect and abuse.

“The Herbalife Family Foundation’s support will enable young people served by the Lighthouse Foundation to have broader access to better nutrition and wellness services,” said Robyn M. Browning, executive director of Herbalife Family Foundation. “We hope that this support will empower them to be better equipped at making good health choices when it comes to what they eat and how they stay active.”

Established in 1991, Lighthouse Foundation supports homeless young people to take their rightful place in the community by giving them a home, a family and therapeutic care that is proven to work. There are eleven Lighthouse homes in Melbourne and regional Victoria, where live-in specialists support young people.

For more than two decades, Lighthouse Foundation has successfully assisted hundreds of young Australians with employment and educational opportunity, which builds independence, creates a connection to their community, and helps them define goals for themselves.

The Casa Herbalife program was established in 2005 to help bring good nutrition to children living in orphanages, using after school centers, and other non-profit facilities around the world tasked with helping under-served young people. After the initial financial grants made by HFF, the organizations receive local financial and volunteer support from Independent Herbalife members as well as Herbalife employees.

To date, HFF supports over 100 Casa Herbalife programs globally and serves the daily nutritional needs of more than 120,000 children around the world through annual grants to NGOs and charities that cater to vulnerable children.
