COPAL’s Health and Wellness strategy is crafted with our community at the forefront, aiming to be a positive force for change. COPAL’s approach has two key focuses: firstly, connecting individuals with essential resources, and secondly, advocating for systemic changes to ensure health and wellness services are accessible to everyone, empowering each community member to lead healthy and dignified lives.
Central to COPAL’s approach is a commitment to preventive health. COPAL believes that building a foundation of well-being starts with taking proactive measures. This belief is embodied in Promotores de Salud, or Community Health Promoters, a program designed to foster community leadership through popular education. This initiative values individual lived experiences and insights, creating a collaborative learning environment that uplifts and empowers community members.
Importantly, COPAL’s reach extends beyond the Twin Cities region. With dedicated teams in Mankato and Rochester, COPAL is bridging the gap between urban and rural communities, ensuring that the resources available in metropolitan areas are equally accessible to rural counterparts.
COPAL is committed to creating a future where health and wellness are not just aspirations but tangible realities for every member of our community.
COPAL’s Navigators are devoted to empowering Latine communities by facilitating connections to essential resources, enabling individuals to lead healthy and dignified lives. With a focus on linking community members to a variety of resources, from food assistance to mental health support and more, COPAL’s team of experts seeks to meet the diverse needs of our community.
