EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – In honor of Mother’s day, Centro de Salud Familiar La Fe will have a luncheon to celebrate its personnel and the mothers and grandmothers of the Segundo Barrio who fought to establish this award-winning non- profit more than 55 years ago.

Mexico traditionally celebrates Mother’s Day on May 10th.

“The mothers and grandmothers of our community were the force behind the social-justice movement that created La Fe. The mothers of today’s La Fe carry on our founders’ legacy by fighting for our families’ wellbeing — including being on the frontlines in our community’s fight against the COVID pandemic.”

La Fe CEO Salvador Balcorta MSSW.

What La Fe’s founders first launched as a tiny, grassroots clinic in a Segundo Barrio tenement in 1967 has now grown into an award-winning Federally Qualified Health Center and social-justice non-profit. Today, La Fe’s El Paso County-wide health-care network provides quality, affordable health care to low-income families across our region.
