June: Celebrating our Dads

Community Health Fair

Garfield Health FairCommunity members, volunteers, and medical professionals came together on May 17th for a health fair at Garfield High School. The Bienvenidos Mobile Unit was on site to assist with medical plan enrollments and to provide services. A big shout out to the Princeton Club of Los Angeles, Stanford Alumni Association, the Yale Club of Los Angeles, and the Garfield parent volunteers for helping make this event such a huge success!

Honoring our Dads

The most recent class of the Bienvenidos fatherhood program participated in a ceremonial gathering yesterday, in which the community came out to honor the men for their commitment to fatherhood and family. It was also a time to rejoice in knowing that these men made a public promise to their families and community to be examples of healthy manhood. We also celebrated Father’s Day with this special event!

Funder Spotlight

Bienvenidos is honored to be the recipient of a $10,000 grant by the Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation to continue support of our school-based health centers. Thank you Borchard Foundation for your amazing support of our mission!
