Padres con Iniciativa / Parents with Initiative
Virginia Garcia offers a parenting education program to empower parents with the skills to raise healthy children. This program is called Padres con Iniciativa or Parents with Initiative (PCI). Now in its 26th year, PCI has helped to transform the lives of thousands of children.
PCI uses an evidence-based curriculum and one-on-one coaching to build parenting skills. The program teaches parents about the stages of childhood development, positive and age-appropriate discipline skills, health, wellness, and safety. The curriculum is in Spanish, and all materials for parents are designed for easy comprehension. Virginia Garcia offers assistance with transportation to the classes for those who need it.
Migrant Camp Program
Through the Migrant Camp Outreach Program, the Virginia Garcia Outreach Team provides medical treatment and health education to migrant and seasonal farmworkers living and working in local migrant labor camps.
From May through August, Virginia Garcia sends a team of providers, nurses, and health educators to the camps to provide on-site treatment and education. Health Educators provide education about sexually transmitted diseases, pesticide exposure, and prevention of work-related injuries.
