Connections for Health, Education and Wellness

Community Health and Wellness Partnership (CHWP) is a collaborative community program whose mission is to better address unmet health and wellness needs of families in Lawndale, Hawthorne, Gardena, El Segundo and the Centinela Valley.

Service delivery and educational programs will be designed for each community's unique needs as identified through Family Health Day clinics, focus groups and interactions with local stakeholders.
