African Refuge teamed up with the Evelyn L. Spiro School of Nursing at Wagner College and Project Hospitality to create the Partnership in Community Health (PICH) program, which promotes the health and dignity of low-income families, including immigrants, refugees and those who have endured wars, torture and other catastrophic circumstances.
The program helps clients access and navigate health care and social services, free of charge. On-site services include:
Services are provided by a professional staff. PICH engages the Park Hill community to promote the well-being of its members, using a culturally-sensitive, interdisciplinary approach. PICH aims to empower Parkhill community members to manage their own health care in a way that optimizes their quality of life.
