Neighborhood Health Partners with Arlington Group to Help Latino, Immigrant Communities Overcome Obstacles to Vaccines
April 29, 2021
Thank you to Arlington Now for highlighting Neighborhood Health’s partnership with Arlington Schools Hispanic Parents Association (ASHPA) to connect members of our communities to vaccines.
“Talento and Janeth Valenzuela started ASHPA in 2016 with two other women to address the communication gap among the county, the school system, and Spanish-speaking and other immigrant households. During the pandemic, the group pivoted to focusing on weekly food distributions, rent support, mental health education and now, registering people for vaccine appointments through the community health center, Neighborhood Health.“
