Multi-Cultural. It's not just an important concept. It is the very essence of who we are and what we do.

Since 1976, we have worked in partnership with individuals, groups and organizations in the community to promote health and well-being in diverse communities. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of diverse communities--including individuals from communities of color, individuals with limited English proficiency, immigrants and refugees--through innovative health advocacy, health promotion, disease prevention, and immigrant and refugee service programs.

Our approach is firmly grounded in the principle that effective responses to health issues must be generated in partnership with the community and meet evolving community needs. Therefore, we hire staff who reflect and understand the communities with which they work and who work through and within community networks to ensure support for our programs and services.

Put your baby to sleep on his/her back until he/she can roll over. We now know that babies who are put to sleep on their tummies are at higher risk of dying from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) than babies who are put to sleep on their backs.
