What we do
Health & Wellness
In support of the Esperanza Community Center’s mission of empowering Northwood day laborers and families to thrive, ECC helps Center clients access health and wellness services and resources in the community.
We link those in need of medical and mental health services to local service providers.
Distributing diapers to mothers in the community to help with infant care, made possible thanks to donations of diapers by the Cotton Bottom Diaper Bank.
Providing dental care for children via the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital’s mobile dental center. Events are held monthly, 15 children receive basic dental care that include a checkup, x-rays, cleaning and treatment plan if needed, at each visit.
The Esperanza Community Center is currently working to provide health and wellness screenings by collaborating with community partners that serve area residents.
Covid & Flu
Arranging for testing and vaccinations in cooperation with various city departments and pharmacies. Distributing health and safety supplies such as hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves.
