WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! June is Immigrant Heritage Month AND Pride Month! As we prepare for immigrant Heritage Month AND Pride Month we will be lifting up stories regarding the experiences of the immigrant AND LGTBQIA+ community when accessing health care. This is a safe space to lift up experiences, lift up barriers, what you hope to see within health care systems when it comes to providing care to the LGTBQIA+ and immigrant community, and what you work towards preventing, ie stigma! Interested in sharing your story? Fill it out http://bit.ly/immigrantheritagemonth AND http://bit.ly/junepridemonth ! Have any questions, feel free to reach out to iPrevent Program Coordinator Helena Likaj at hlikaj@ohlinc.org #iPrevent #celebrateimmigrants #pride

SUCCESSFUL CONNECT TO HEALTH BLOCK PARTY

iPrevent's Connect To Health Block Party, was an absolute success! During our free block party we served BBQ, refreshments, snowballs, face painting, along with providing information about OHL and all our wonderful programs, free health services like blood pressure, glucose, HIV and Hep C testing. Additionally we connected individuals to iPrevent's social media services that provide educational information on a daily basis and played music directly from iPrevent OHL's radio station that played educational PSA's every-top of the hour. We had a number of staff, volunteers, and community members show up learn more about health services OHL provides and provided a way to stay engaged with community member through social media and follow up. Thank you to everyone who played a role! Huge shoutout to APEX Youth Center and WIC for partnering with us on this event.

Human Rights Week

Written by an international committee in 1948,  the Declaration of Human Rights is based on the belief that all individuals are born free and equal in dignity and rights. OHL's Peer Prevention Team hit the streets of New Orleans and  interviewed youth age 13-24 on what this meant to them. We were blown away by the amazing responses we received.
