Project Access in Southeast LA
Project Budget: $40,000
Worksite Wellness LA (WWLA)
WWLA’s program, Project Access, is a multi-dimensional project that covers topics related to physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. The curriculum provides assistance navigating local health resources to prevent chronic conditions through eight workshops on topics including financial literacy, healthy lifestyles, stress management and food budget planning.
Through this program we anticipate reaching 100 individuals, primarily low-income Latina women and their families, with preventive health education that includes better nutrition and financial literacy, as well as social service navigation tools. AltaMed’s Match Grant of $20,000 will expand staff capacity to substantially increase Project Access presentations, particularly in the following Southeast communities: Bell, Bell Gardens, Cudahy, Downey, Huntington Park, Maywood, and Walnut Park.
