- The Promotoras Bienestar project
The goal of this ambitious project is to improve the holistic ‘health’ and well-being of the residents who live in the Mitchell School catchment area (Thomas to McDowell, 35th Ave. to 43rd Ave.), including the physical, mental and social well-being of the community, and to strengthen the community by integrating community residents and organizations into the planning and execution of Promotoras programs.
Promotoras are available to provide case management for families looking for low-cost/free health clinics and insurances, as well as assist families in finding other social services such as counseling, housing, and more. Promotoras promote those services by attending local community events, visiting door-to-door, group and individual health talks, and the Mitchell-Golden Gate Neighborhood Association.
