We are always overwhelmed by your generosity and compassion. This month, we were honored to receive several very special gifts that will have an immediate impact on the 50,000 lives we touch every year.
“When you visit someone’s home, you never know what you’re going to find,” says Carla Caraballo, one of Lowell CHC’s Lead Community Health Workers (CHWs). “Maybe they need food, or help taking their medicine. Maybe they just need someone to listen.”
At Lowell Community Health Center, one of the biggest obstacles our patients face is just getting here. Between lack of transportation, cultural barriers, work schedules, and other constraints, just making it to the exam room can be a challenge. Enter Lowell CHC’s Community Health Workers, like Carla.
Join us Friday, September 20th, 2019 for festive food, music and fun celebrating the vibrancy and heritage of Lowell’s African Community! The celebration will benefit Lowell CHC’s WrapAround Fund, which pays for vital services not covered by insurance. The evening will kick-off at 5:30 PM right here at Lowell CHC (161 Jackson Street).
