What a fun night celebrating former Natividad and Natividad Foundation physician and creator of “5 Steps to Prevent Diabetes” Dr. Dana Kent and her husband Sen. Bill Monning. They were honored with the Center for Community Advocacy Ben Heller Leadership Award: Dr. Kent for improving the health conditions of all patients, including the farmworker community and Sen. Monning his efforts to create safe and equitable work environments for agricultural workers.

California State University, Monterey Bay- A celebration of loved ones who have passed at Center for Community’s Dia de Los Mu***os celebration.
Vibrancy, rememberance, love and reverence for culture throughout the room. Loved seeing supporters & friends & meeting new friends. We are lucky to have communities coming together in Monterey County. I have witnessed this first hand and pledge to embrace all groups as stakeholders in how we police and work in our varied communities as your next Monterey County Sheriff.
Be sure to help make my aspirations a reality- VOTE Tina Nieto Monterey County Sheriff 2022!
Two of our staff speaking to demand the removal of the exemption for inclusionary housing in downtown Salinas. Thanks Center for Community Advocacy for leading the way.
Today the Blue Zones Project - Monterey County officially certified the Soledad Parks & Rec as a Blue Zone organization after completing the certification process. This is great news for our community and shows the commitment to health and longevity!

SOCOS Social is held every 2nd Tuesday of the month. The Soledad Parks & Rec and Meals on Wheels collaborate to provide a free lunch, entertainment and resources to seniors. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with our seniors. It was good to see so many smiling and familiar faces.

Thank you to our resource organizations that come out monthly to provide information for our SOCOS Social. Shout out to the gals at the Center for Community Advocacy.

Good things going on at the Soledad Community Center.
As many of our families continue to struggle with inflation, high gas prices and increased utility bills, I encourage everyone to apply for the affordable connectivity program.

Congratulations to all the Promotora Graduates in Greenfield today!

Working with the Center for Community Advocacy, these community leaders received training to connect residents with health care services as well as educate and inform on health issues.
DID YOU KNOW? The social and emotional benefits of Art are many. It helps children express thoughts, emotions and anxieties in a safe and constructive manner. Students involved in the arts have increased academic achievements and critical thinking skills. This is why the partnership with Center for Community Advocacy and the Soledad Community Center is important. Thank you Adriana Melgoza for coordinating today’s event, Paletas & Art. I was glad to help make the connection to support local art and children.

Issues affecting our community listed by our youth include housing, homelessness, access to more youth activities, school system and lack of open space.
Thank you to the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board for hosting an open house and roundtable discussion on Farmworker housing in Salinas this week.

This important discussion included presentations from California Department of Housing & Community Development, California Institute for Rural Studies, Chispa Housing, Eden Housing, California Coalition for Rural Housing - CCRH, and Center for Community Advocacy.
We are excited to share the Center for Community Advocacy (CCA) will be leading the farmworker community engagement for the General Plan Update- Visión Salinas 2040.
I want to thank all the residents who joined me yesterday for a housing roundtable at the Alisal Family Resource Center. We had a productive discussion on the housing challenges that continue to face residents in our community and the positive difference that affordable housing and home ownership has had on their lives.

Thank you to the Center for Community Advocacy and Monterey Bay Economic Partnership for helping to facilitate the discussion.
Great day today in The City of Soledad, California.
Invited to be a guest speaker at Center for Community Advocacy Promotoras de Salud program graduation. Over 18 community leaders met during the past 5 months to be trained as community health advocates! Congratulations! I look forward to working with each of you!!

The Promotores de Salud program, trains neighborhood leaders to become community health advocates who bring resources, information, and education directly to community members.

Our team was honored to be there for today’s Promotora graduation ceremony held by the Center for Community Advocacy in Soledad.

CCA Promotoras are trained community leaders that work to educate and connect local residents to vital services including healthcare.
Today we celebrate the life and memory of César Chavez and reflect on the accomplishments of the labor leader, community organizer, and one-time San Jose resident. The legacy of César Chavez was his tireless efforts to bring dignity and respect to farmworkers and promote social justice.

César Chavez, a son of migrant farmworkers, brought attention to the harsh living conditions of agricultural workers by organizing marches, boycotts, and hunger strikes. In 1962, Chavez and Dolores Huerta co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers Union (UFW).

In honor of César Chavez Day, VHP's office will be closed today, Thursday, March 31st. We will resume normal hours on Friday, April 1st.

The new member welcomes keep on coming! Join us in welcoming our newest nonprofit member Center for Community Advocacy. The Center for Community Advocacy (CCA) provides education, orientation, and legal support to farmworkers and other low-income working families who want to establish neighborhood committees that work to improve housing and health conditions. CCA trains these committees to negotiate with landlords to resolve issues such as unsafe housing conditions, housing discrimination, and security deposits. CCA also trains these committees to provide preventative health information and interventions in their neighborhoods. To learn more about their important work in our community visit www.cca-viva.org.
