From their earliest moments, children are impacted by their environments, and science has never been more able to suggest ways in which those impacts can be positive: developments in neuroscience continue to expand our knowledge of what children need to grow, learn, and thrive
“When we give kids attention, we give our communities hope.”
President & Founder, The Steve Nash Foundation
Begun by Steve and his family, the Steve Nash Foundation is dedicated to assisting underserved children in their health, personal development, education, and enjoyment of life. The Foundation focuses its resources on underserved populations of children, both at home in British Columbia and the U.S., and abroad. By thoughtfully addressing global and local challenges by innovating in and collaborating on critical areas of inquiry, we work to implement strategies that empower communities, and build kids health.
