Hurricane Harvey Update
El Centro is working diligently to provide support to families that experienced loss and devastation brought by Hurricane Harvey. We are dedicated to helping those in need and we are committed to providing the highest quality of health care and outreach services for the uninsured and underserved affected by poverty and chronic illnesses; particularly during this recovery stage. Your contributions make a significant impact on the health and well-being of vulnerable children, adults, and families in our community.
In the aftermath of this natural disaster, El Centro’s mission to promote strong health in the East End is more important than ever. Individuals with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, require medical and dental care and attention. Children and families are traumatized and are in need of counseling and other behavioral health services. Your support has provided El Centro with the resources to ensure comprehensive health care services are provided for area residents, which is aimed at reducing the long term physical and mental health consequences of Hurricane Harvey.
With your help, together we will continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of underserved, uninsured/underinsured individuals in the East End and the greater Houston area. Thank you again for your generous support!
