Core/El Centro and Aurora Walkers Point Community Clinic created Proyecto Salud, a program that provides the Latino community access to healthcare with a more holistic approach. Volunteers at Proyecto Salud provide everything from healthcare services to yoga classes.
I met Ana Paula Soares, Proyecto Salud's Director, as well as Jillian Holy, Proyecto Salud's Volunteer Coordinator, Nina Larson, Volunteer Yoga Interpreter..and...a pleasant surprise a bit later in the interview, Jayne Ader, Co-Executive Director.
We sat down in the sun-drenched offices at 611 W. National to talk about the support services provided by their trained volunteers, the importance of creating bridges between the various Milwaukee communities, and healing not only the individual, but also community.
