On Saturday, June 21st, 2014, Bienvenidos staff and volunteers hosted the 8th Annual Families Helping Families Giveaway in East Los Angeles. Bienvenidos Project Corazon and CalWORKs clients were invited, as well as community members, to the East LA Community Youth Center to select clothing, homegoods, and children’s items that had been donated by the community. Even though it was hot, there were smiles all around!

On Saturday, June 21st, Bienvenidos staff and volunteers teamed up to host the 8th Annual Families Helping Families Giveaway. Clients of Project Corazon and Cal WORKs, two of Bienvenidos’ prevention programs, were invited to the East LA Community Youth Center to select items donated by the community – clothes, household supplies, children’s toys and games, and much more.

The Mobile Health Unit was also on site performing health screenings and distributing information about the Bienvenidos Community Health Clinic.

Stay Safe in the Sun

Now that summer is officially here, remember to stay safe whenever you’re out in the sun. Our doctors recommend drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and to put on sunscreen regardless of how long you’ll be in the sun.  Also, remember that it gets hot fast in cars, so never leave your children (or pets!) alone in the car, even for “just a minute.”

The Bienvenidos Community Health Center recently submitted a proposal to HRSA, the Health Resources and Services Administration, to expand medical services at the clinic and enhance our behavioral health practice. A big shoutout to those that made it possible!
