Jorge Olvera is the Community Engagement Manager at El Centro de Corazón.

As El Centro de Corazón’s Community Engagement Manager, I build relationships with East End residents, employees, and leaders to champion healthy lives beyond our clinics and connect those in need to resources.

El Centro staff work every day to bridge the need between the clinic and our patients’ households, from providing free back-to-school supplies to area children, to stocking diapers and food at our emergency pantry, to providing families in need with presents for the holidays when they otherwise would have none.

Equipping our patients to live healthy but also joyous lives, lives where need does not determine what they or their children can accomplish—this is at the heart of what drives my work.

Our outreach team organized El Centro’s annual East End Posada this year and with our generous partners, we provided holiday gifts to more than 130 children. In a year full of uncertainty and for many, grief, the comfort of tradition brought so many families in need holiday joy and a sense of wellbeing.
