CEO, El Centro de Corazan
1. El Centro de Corazan was founded in 1994 as a community-based social service organization for East End families, with an initial focus on early childhood development and mental health services.
2. The mission of El Centro de Corazan is to promote the individual, community, and social health of the East End and the greater Houston area.
3. El Centro de Corazan will be hosting its annual Back to School event on August 15 at its Magnolia Location. Registrants will receive free haircuts, face painting, school supplies (elementary-aged children), and assistance with Medicaid, CHIP and CHIP Prenatal applications. The Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Law Firm will also attend to donate and custom-fit more than 500 children with free safety helmets.
4. El Centro runs three healthcare centers located throughout Houston's East End to serve low-income, underserved children and adults with comprehensive healthcare services. In 2015, we anticipate serving over 14,000 children and adults and over 38,250 patient visits which will impact the overall physical, social and mental health of area residents. We also assist the community with the Affordable Care Act providing application assistance and education.
