In April 1999 – during Mes Del Niño (Children’s Month) our founders’ dream of a children’s state-of-the-art health-care and a disease-prevention/ health-education facility became a reality.
The La Fe Child and Adolescent Wellness Center (CAWC) opened its doors and was immediately recognized nationwide as a leader in education, health-care, and medical services for our community’s low-income children and teens. Everything within its walls — from the culturally respectful murals and artwork to the bilingual sensitivity of its staff — creates a positive health-care experience of children and their families.
The CAWC is a multi-building complex that houses one of the nation’s most unique pediatric community-health centers. Here, traditional medical care joins forces with cultural arts and technology to address the health disparities of Hispanic children and their families.
The CAWC’s arts education and technology component, the Culture and Technology Center (CTC), also opened its doors during Children’s Month in 2003. This facility serves as a haven for our community’s arts. Since its beginning, the CTC has gained recognition for its strong focus on Mexican-American heritage, cultural awareness, and educational activities for our community’s children.
These elements all tie in with the CTC’s wide range of educational and arts activities. These include courses in computer literacy, graphic design, arts and crafts, General Education Development (GED), English-language Learner education, US-Citizenship exam preparedness, digital video editing, culinary arts, and ballet folklórico.
All community members in need of information regarding the Affordable Care Act’s marketplace can receive on-site registration assistance at this facility.
