IDEPSCA's work is for and by immigrant community members and their families. We see this through Mujeres en Accion, household workers who meet to develop their leadership skills in order to change their realities around issues of labor and health. We see this in our Aprendamos afterschool program. Currently meeting twice a week in Lincoln Heights, grade schoolers meet with their families to learn about water conservation. Their session will culminate with a community mural that the young people will design and paint.
On Thursday, March 26, from 8 am to 11 am, in conjunction with California Hospital Medical Center, we will be offering free health screenings at our Downtown Community Job Center location. The screenings that will be offered include blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar testing and testing for anemia.
Results will be provided the same day but spaces are limited. Please reserve your spot by calling (213) 747-2064.
