Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

The MolinaCares Accord partners with community organizations to support and empower the Latino and Hispanic communities throughout the country. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we are proud to celebrate the dedication of organizations that are working to better their communities.    

Many Mothers – New Mexico

In New Mexico, MolinaCares is partnering with Many Mothers to support pregnant and new moms through pre- and post-natal wraparound services. Grant funding is increasing the organization’s capacity to provide direct services to more Spanish-speaking families. Through their home visitor program, Many Mothers connects new moms with trained, Spanish-speaking volunteers to ensure families have the guidance, support, and extra help they need when caring for new babies. Learn more by watching a short video highlighting the services provided through the grant and the impact this partnership will have on families in the Santa Fe area.

Reach Out West End Mamás y Bebés – California

As part of the MolinaCares California Equity and Accessibility Initiative, we have partnered with Reach Out to support their Mamás y Bebés program. This program provides new and expecting mothers in the Inland Empire area with mental health services and support to improve maternal and infant health outcomes. Learn more about the Mamás y Bebés program by watching a short video featuring some of the moms who participated in the program.

Southeast Georgia Communities Project – Georgia

Through this partnership, Southeast Georgia Communities Project is providing transportation and translation services to clients in need of medical services. This grant addresses the great need for transportation services to major medical facilities for chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries and or other necessary specialized procedures. Language services to non-English speaking clients as well as document translation will be provided by trained, Spanish-speaking medical interpreters.

Latino Pride Alliance – Arizona

MolinaCares is supporting the work of Latino Pride Alliance to reach out to more than 50,000 Arizonans to ensure they are getting the health care and services they are eligible for. In response to the end of the public health emergency, Latino Pride Alliance is working to educate the Hispanic community on the Medicaid redetermination process through a variety of events and initiatives, including a Spanish town hall and individual face-to-face outreaches.  

Latino Leadership – Florida

MolinaCares is partnering with Latino Leadership, Inc., a nonprofit organization facilitating access to resources for those in the Hispanic community. The grant funded an additional four exam rooms at the organization’s Clinica Mi Salud, a facility providing primary and mental health care to those without medical insurance and whose income is at or below the 200% poverty level. Currently serving approximately 750 clients, the new exam room will allow Latino Leadership, Inc. to expand offerings to even more people in need.
