of Our Community!
The LUCC Community Clinic was established as a response to the community’s need for accessible and affordable health care and is dedicated to improving the physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being of the elderly, poor, and under served growing Latino population. Realizing that Carroll County has a large impoverished Latino and African American population and that the poor often lack adequate health care, the LUCC Clinic was created to address these needs. After gaining city approval from the Carrollton Housing Authority, LUCC's Health care Clinic opened for service on August 23, 2002. Tanner Medical Center generously offers support in the form of a grant.
LUCC’s current prime goal is to provide access to health care to the low income minority populations of Carrollton.
We collaborate with Tanner Medical Center to provide the Mammogram Movil Unit on the first Thursday of the month. Must make an appointment prior to service.
We teach the citizenship classes to those who comprehend the English language so they can learn the class in English, those who cannot take the class in English are sent to ESL classes so they can understand better the class. The class is once a week for an hour on Thursdays at 3:30p.m.
We have a pre-diabetes class on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. People interested must register and be approved to be in the class. Must attend the 16 classes and compromise to be receptive in making a change in their lives.
We offer individual classes or in group for those diabetics that wish to take control of their health. MUST REGISTER and agree to to do an A1C test at least twice a year.
The children come and learn about good foods, and learn to do fun physical activities and are encouraged to stay healthy and active! They come with their mothers and while the parents are in a class, they also are in theirs.
ESL classes are provided with a partnership with University of West Georgia's Continuing Education and the Ag Center. We are working on having classes in the mornings and evenings.
This program is for Latino parents with children between 10 and 14 years old. This program is a 7 week program and we work with CETPA and Carrollton High School to Provide this program to the community.
We provide educational forums so our community understands processes and get oriented on what needs to be done. We work with local and Atlanta attorneys who donate their time to educate our community.
We collaborate with the University of West Georgia and Carrollton High School by providing mentors for those high school students who need help with their homework and the university students mentor and inspire them to stay in school and get interested in a higher education.
We are committed individuals who wish to make a difference in our community. Sometimes we do not have all of the answers, but we strive to find solutions to problems our community experiences.
