Outreach

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.

Growing Roots East End Network (GREEN)

The Growing Roots East End Network (GREEN) aim is to bring together local schools and organizations for the purpose of helping sustain, promote, and connect gardens across the school feeder patterns.
