Cultural Communities Wellness Program is a Family Outreach and Engagement Program provides linguistic and cultural competent outreach and education, advocacy and peer support to ethnic communities.

There are 7 ECCAC teams: African Heritage, African Immigrant (Eritrean, Ethiopian, and Somali), Chinese, Filipino, Latino, Native American, and Vietnamese. Each team has a community-specific logic model and service plan based on needs of each community. Our target audiences are ethnic and cultural communities in Santa Clara County, especially to monolingual individuals and families.
