MAMBO Program Details

Funded by the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, the MAMBO program is a Youth Tobacco Prevention Program. Both ACC clients and the community-at-large are served. The program uses the Botvin LifeSkills Training curriculum; weekly, one-hour, interactive lessons delivered over a two month period. Our goal is to protect the youth in our community from the dangers of tobacco use and addiction through education and empowerment.

Project PATH Details

Project Path (Patient Access to Health), funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, was initiated to reduce barriers to consistent and timely breast cancer care for women in our community. This program matches women with one of our staff members who will support and guide them through breast cancer treatment and recovery. We serve refugee, immigrant, and minority women with breast cancer in the DMV area by providing them with transportation assistance, financial support, translation services, and referrals to community organizations and support groups. 

RHEO Program Details

The Refugee Health Education Outreach Program provides educational services and referral based case management to refugees attempting to navigate the health care system. To do this we educate through the delivery of workshops and the distribution of informative materials, both in English and native languages. Through our workshops, clients gain the skills needed to manage their own health in the United States. Additionally, the Health Liaison makes referrals to medical professionals, non-profits focused on providing health services for under-insured and/or low-income clients, and additional educational opportunities.
