We have received new grants, which are expanding our opportunities to help the people of Chesapeake. Through a grant generously provided by the Robert Wood Johnson foundation, we are providing low-income youth and seniors with access to computers in order to improve their technological skills. Partnering with TCC Computer Club, we have already provided our pilot senior living facilities with desktop computers to use in an effort to educate them about the evolving technological world. We are also creating a mobile learning lab in an effort to bring STEM activities to our seniors and youth.
Through a grant generously given by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, we are establishing a free Diabetes and Hypertension Clinic that will provide visits to those who are affected by diabetes in a effort to supply these patients with medications and needed supplies. This clinic will also provide the patients with a social worker to assist with case management.
The Diabetes and Hypertension Bridge Clinic is located at the Chesapeake Avenue United Methodist Church. Come see us in January!
