El Centro’s staff and volunteers help communities understand the benefits of a healthier lifestyle. This might involve representing El Centro at a health fair, assisting in upcoming events or talking with parents about diabetes prevention.

El Centro needs individuals and groups to volunteer who want to make a positive impact on the lives of our patients. Please contact Obed Canjura, Outreach Coordinator, at ocanjura@elcentrochc.org or 832-494-1772.

Magnolia Park Community Garden 

El Centro de Corazón, Houston Health Department, and community members in the East End are coming together to revitalize the garden. The garden will promote healthier lifestyles, build a sense of community, educate and increase access to healthy foods.

Revive the community garden with us! We need your talents, gifts, and dreams to make this into a neighbor-driven community space.
