A study conducted by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health concluded that 42% of individuals in Maywood are uninsured, compared to the 25% in the Los Angeles County. Even under the category of insured individuals, 27% report difficulty accessing healthcare. We established our program in Southeast Los Angeles due to the high number of uninsured individuals in the region. Although we primarily serve immigrants, low-income families, and the homeless individuals, we provide our services to anyone who is struggling with access to quality health-care and medical services.
Our organization is best suited to tackle this need for we provide free medical services and nutritional services in a stress-free and comfortable environment. We emphasize preventative care and establishing networks through which our clients can receive proper nutritional supplies, healthcare, and lifestyle guidance. Our commitment to the health of the communities we serve not only provide the opportunity for individuals to improve and maintain a healthy lifestyle but also empower our clients by establishing a strong sense of community.
