Health and Wellness is a new division of the Family Support Department at the Liga. We welcome clients to take advantage of the knowledge and experience offered. Our hope is to be able to address the community health needs. We currently are funded by the Susan G. Koman foundation which allows us to deliver preventive breast health education. We broadcast in the radio show 'Sabor Latino' every Saturday from 5-7 p.m. with a live feed through Power 106.9. Through these means, educational capsules on topics such as how to detect and conduct self breast examination, the importance of annual exams by your physician and ways to improve the chances of not getting breast cancer are addressed. We are available to meet with clients on personal and private sessions. We are making strides toward a world with more birthdays.

The Social Work program works throughout the agency to strengthen progress toward the agency mission. We are working to increase agency efficiency by creating an intake system and an agency-wide database. We also provide monthly staff development programs to meet the various desires and needs of staff members. We are collaborating with the Language Services department in training interpreters to work in mental health settings and thus improve Latino access to mental health services. We are working to educate the community about the Latino culture through training programs and meetings with various groups. The Social Work program also serves clients directly through general case management and referrals.
