ACLAMO Family Centers

Community Fund for Wellness

The Community Health Connections program delivers community-based support groups, exercise sessions, and nutrition services.

About

The expanded Health and Wellness program will assist clients in a number of key areas related to health and wellness. 

Individual and Family Services: Their Benefit Application program will assist 1,500 individuals to access health insurance, social security and disability support and navigate barriers to access to and utilization of services. Additionally, their Community Health Worker (CHW) program will provide intensive support services to 60 low-income Latino adults and children with significant health issues that are considered poorly managed by a health care provider and acute conditions requiring urgent attention. Such services will include care coordination and systems navigation; education and coaching; mediation to educate providers about cultural norms around health; and systems advocacy to address barriers to care. 

Group Services: ACLAMO’s Health & Wellness Educator will facilitate group services reaching 100 girls and women which aim to decrease stress and ease feelings of depression and isolation. Support groups will be offered as a regularly occurring opportunity for ACLAMO clients/community members to share challenges and receive support and informal recommendations in a peer setting. The Educator will 1) facilitate two 6-week support group sessions for girls aged 12-17 and women aged 18+ addressing self-care, nutrition, self-esteem and other topics identified by participants; 2) coordinate two 8-week yoga sessions led by certified instructors; and 3) organize two 3-week sessions on nutrition and money management. Each session will include a visit to a grocery store to learn how to shop in season and buy healthy products on a budget.

Community Services: ACLAMO will also serve as a cultural broker between local health providers and the community to promote systems change solutions that address barriers to care, such as compliance with Title VI requirements and affordable payment options. Through their leadership role in advocacy coalitions, including PICC and PCCY Dreamcare, ACLAMO will advocate for local, state and national policies that positively impact the wellness of Latino immigrants.
