SACHWA in collaboration with Día de La Mujer Latina are working together to offer this helpful resource to San Antonio’s Spanish speaking population.
This is a Spanish phone line where people can call or text to request information to connect with community health resources (clinics, wellness programs, immunizations, health insurance resources). People having difficulty scheduling their doctors’ appointments due to the language barrier or who need help finding and obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine are welcome to call or text.
Local Community Health Workers/Promotores de Salud will answer the calls. Also, If you or your organization would like to share information with us on programming/services that promote physical, mental, and spiritual wellness, you may Email that information to email@example.com and we will add it to our database.
For questions about this service please contact Guadalupe Cornejo at firstname.lastname@example.org

The COVID-19 Community Response Coalition (CRC), Community Health Worker leaders in San Antonio, and Northwest Vista’s Community Health Worker faculty members are partnering to host a summit meeting for all Community Health Workers (CHWs) working in Bexar County. The goal of this meeting is to bring together CHWs to create a supportive network to share lessons learned, best practices, key messages, and essential resources for community health workers and for the communities we serve. As we continue to develop strategies and collaborations to combat the current public health crisis posed by COVID-19, community health workers must continue to come together to strengthen our collective impact and to develop a supportive peer-to-peer network and alliances with other disciplines to expand our reach and service delivery.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 12 from 3:00pm to 5:00 pm.
For questions about the event, please contact Guadalupe Cornejo, Community Health Instructor/Northwest Vista College at email@example.com

On Thursday, August 20, 2020 City Council voted 9-0-1 to declare racism a public health crisis in our city. “With this resolution, we are called to recognize the clear, unvarnished truth in how racism has shaped the health of our community” San Antonio City Council District 7.
Colleagues, as you know, many of the barriers to achieving good health in our community stems from outcomes that are directly correlated to systemic and structural racism and economic segregation. Therefore, having this resolution in place serves as a vehicle towards creating policies and programming across systems and thus enable equity in the access and distribution of resources.
Below is the copy of the letter of support submitted to City Council. You are called to take action towards advancing this resolution into action items as it applies to your personal life, work and community.
