OLA Works for a Healthy East End
All community members deserve to enjoy excellent physical and mental health. By helping people navigate health care systems, taking them to medical appointments, and creating better access to health and mental health services, we are working toward a stronger, healthier East End.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, we have provided a variety of pandemic-related services, including setting up a mobile testing site early in the pandemic, operating numerous vaccination sites throughout the East End, educating community members about vaccine safety, and distributing COVID test kits.
If you have not yet been vaccinated and would like to learn more, please contact us.
Health Care Access
Health equity starts with health care access. Lack of interpretation and translation services, health insurance, and transportation are just some of the obstacles community members experience when trying to access health care on the East End.
OLA offers support and follow-
up in these areas to ensure your health care needs are met.
Medical Transportation Program
OLA staff and volunteers provide medical transportation to and from cancer treatments, pediatric visits, OB-GYN visits, and other critical health and mental health appointments.
We also provide interpretation at doctors’ offices whenever possible as well as assist you with follow-up calls and appointments.
