Health screening and health education programs are the main activities of the ministry. In the past, numerous health fairs have been held, aerobics classes, a SALSA program, parenting classes and a Cancer support group have been initiated. In addition, flu shots have been administered, blood drives held, and children finger printed for the Heidi Search Center.
Capacity building in the community is also an important aspect of the ministry. Three Promotoras have been trained in health education and promotion and participate in the ministry by visiting the homebound elderly, hospitalized residents, and participating in the health education programs.
The ministry is currently involved in outreach programs at Presa Community Center, Villa de Amistad, and Harlandale Senior Center.
