The Central Health Enterprise (Central Health, CommUnityCare Health Centers, Sendero Health Plans, and the Community Care Collaborative, Central Health’s partnership with Seton) and its partners are hosting a back-to-school bash to help families with low income send their children back to class well-prepared, healthy, and ready to learn. Volunteers will give away new donated back packs filled with school supplies, provide free haircuts, and give tours of the community’s new resource center. The event will feature activities for families, sports physicals, important resource information, and free food and beverages.
10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 25, at Turner-Roberts Recreation Center, 7201 Colony Park Loop Drive.

In April, the Northeast Health Resource Center opened at Volma Overton Elementary School. The Center is part of Central Health’s ongoing expansion of services in Eastern Travis County. The Center offers health and social services, and is open Monday through Thursday, and Saturday by appointment only. Central Health and CommUnityCare also expanded clinical services available at the Northeast Health Resource Center from one day per month to every Thursday.
Services at the Northeast Health Resource Center include:
- Eligibility and enrollment services for Central Health’s Medical Access Program (MAP), Medicaid, CHIP, and Healthy Texas Women’s Family Planning Program
- Screening services for blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol
- Diabetes education
- Basic needs application assistance
The Northeast Health Resource Center is the result of a collaboration between Central Health, Austin Public Health, Travis County Health & Human Services, CommUnityCare Health Centers, and the Austin Independent School District.
