Every child has the tools and opportunities to achieve their highest capacity. We accomplish this through a trauma-informed, comprehensive, collective impact plan that addresses the whole child and engages the full community around the goal of empowering its youth to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations.
TRANSFORMATION & THE 5 C'S
At AHHAH we work with a simple formula: 5 C's = T
Compassion + Creativity + Connection + Courage + Commitment = Transformation
WHO WE SERVE
We serve the youth & families of Chester County. Our primary focus is on Coatesville & Kennett Square. As our organization grows we hope to expand our programming to all of the communities in the Greater Delaware Valley.

I liked that I got to be open, relieve my stress and forgive myself for my past and move through this road block. I honestly feel like you should do more of these workshops so kids that are really down can somewhat stand back up."
The Chester County Youth Center culture has been transformed by AHHAH... The youth and our staff have an overall better outlook on their health and wellbeing and how important it is to just “breathe.” AHHAH is such a strong presence in our facility, which has truly built an enormous amount of trust among our youth... AHHAH has proven their mission to build communities with a foundation of kindness and acceptance of all. AHHAH has enhanced our community at CCYC and we are a more authentic community because of the work of AHHAH!”
" I really enjoyed the Mindfulness webinar that you and Amanda put on for the grandparent support network. I loved the yoga stretch time and loved how gentle and loving you and Amanda are. I checked out your website and found it full of delightful resources, information and passion."
“Something that stood out to me is the way we respected each other and didn’t judge one another”
"Before I come to yoga, I'm sad, irritated, depressed, and annoyed. After yoga I'm a little bit happy, calmed. I feel good."
"This class today helped me share some things about my life that I never really expressed to anyone."
"I have participated in a number of trainings through the years, and this one was one of the best-most relevant, engaging, thought provoking, and heart-centered! I really appreciate being included in this consciousness -raising offering!"
" We are all adapting to new service delivery, and we all need more self-care. I was using your techniques this week as I was getting stressed. It's helpful to have tools to help bring you back into focus."
