We Are City Heights

The affiliation with City Heights stems from the overwhelming request from the East African City Heights community to UWEAST to address the physical and mental health related needs of East African refugee women. In response to their request and with a grant from the California Wellness Foundation, a three year project was developed in building bridges between the community and service providers to implement a successful, linguistically appropriate, culturally competent, and cost-effective physical and mental health intervention program that will enable East African women and their families to access and benefit from existing services.
