Puentes De Salud partners with Philadelphia's rapidly growing Latino immigrant community to build long-term prosperity by addressing immediate education, health, and social service needs. Puentes de Salud aims to improve community and individual health and wellness not only by providing immediate services, but also by acknowledging and challenging embedded social inequalities and injustices. They aim to create a responsible learning environment for future generations of advocates, educators and health care providers in order to examine determinants of health, social justice and structural violence within a marginalized community. Puentes tackles the community’s social determinants of health through integral educational programs, community engagement, and dental and medical services at all ages.
We are humbled to support this charity and excited to be a part of improving the local community!
