Client Impact

“It is a blessing having a Promotora from the Latino Leadership Council at the Kaiser Permanente CIC Program to help with my social, medical, and cultural mental health needs. Kaiser CIC is the only family I can count on to make me feel better.”

Mami y Yo Celebrates Christmas
Our little ones had so much fun getting into the Christmas spirit last month with weekly activities including decorating Christmas trees, writing letters to Santa and decorating Christmas cookies. They were so excited for Santa to receive their letters and to eat their yummy cookies. We were happy to gift the holiday spirit to our Mami y Yo families!
