We partner with community organizations, health care providers, nonprofits and government agencies to offer our clients information, referrals and services that are beyond our scope of work. As part of this collaboration, some partners come to our Buford Highway building each month on scheduled days to offer presentations and information in Spanish on topics that include prenatal care, breast cancer prevention, reproductive health, health insurance and financial literacy. We also host various support groups in Spanish on our premises.
Walk-ins are welcome. No appointments are necessary, unless specified below.
