Casa CHE


La Clínica believes that a healthy community produces and nurtures healthy individuals, and healthy individuals bring about and maintain a healthy community. This belief is strongly placed into action in the Community Health Education (CHE) Department. Casa CHE’s work is based on Brazilian educator Paulo Freire’s “conscientization” movement of having people actively participate in and take responsibility for their own education, while creating positive social change. Casa CHE empowers individuals to take an active role in building a healthy community through several programs, including training youth and adult peer educators, deploying an innovative case management program for high risk individuals across La Clínica clinic sites in Alameda County, and addressing food security, access to healthy food, and healthy eating through the Healthy Food/Healthy Families program.

TRUCHA (Together Reaching Users Combating HIV and AIDS)


La Clínica’s HIV prevention department, Together Reaching Users Combating HIV and AIDS (TRUCHA), has been delivering HIV testing, outreach, and prevention services for over 25 years. TRUCHA was established 25+ years ago to respond to the threat of HIV in the Latinx community, especially for those most vulnerable, such as the jornaleros (day laborers).  Since then, TRUCHA has grown and undergone many changes. Today TRUCHA is still a site where people in the community can come for culturally relevant services related to HIV prevention and HIV care, as well as other services that affect our community.

The prevention program consists of staff members who are certified HIV test counselors, trained in numerous elements of behavioral change, health education, and health communication, and are culturally and linguistically representative of the community they serve. TRUCHA staff includes HIV Test Counselors, PrEP Navigators, and Health Educators who lead support groups and group-level intervention programs. TRUCHA further specializes in linking/re-linking clients living with HIV to HIV care. Staff members employed by La Clínica’s HIV prevention program are bilingual in English and Spanish, bicultural, state-certified HIV test counselors, trained in numerous elements of behavioral change, health education, and health communication, and experienced working in the Latinx LGBTQ+ community. TRUCHA’s HIV prevention staff also assists in referring patients from TRUCHA to other services offered at La Clinica.
