AHEAD's mission is to work with underserved communities in developing countries and in the United States to improve the quality of life by implementing programs that lead to self-sufficiency and self-reliance. AHEAD was founded in 1981 by Dr. Irving C. Williams, a pediatrician and public health specialist, and his wife Elvira Felton Williams, to provide hands-on, people-to-people assistance to underserved communities. The goals of the organization are: (1) to reduce and eliminate disease and premature death; (2) to cultivate and advance healthy living; and, (3) to foster sustainable environmental activities.
