Who We Serve

MHP Salud currently works within the most vulnerable Latino communities of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Texas, and Washington. These communities are often rural, primarily Spanish-speaking, and face barriers when trying to maintain a healthy life like lack of access to health services, healthy foods and cultural representation within the health care system. Our CHWs live and work within these communities to help address these barriers and more to help increase access to resources and bring community members closer.
