Our Mission

The mission of Portal de Salud is to help Hispanic/Latino families live healthier lives by promoting health education and improving access to primary care and preventive care services.

To achieve its mission Portal de Salud, Inc. has developed a Wellness Program which is unique model that coordinates health education, early detection through screening services and navigation to medical services. This includes helping clients find permanent medical home, so they receive affordable, continuous care.

Our signature event is one of the biggest health fairs conducted in the Hispanic/Latino community which provides an array of screening services and engages a large number of healthcare providers and community organizations in an effort to enhance the well-being of the community.

Who We Serve

Portal de Salud, Inc. serves a large community of Hispanic/Latino families who are members of the community and that include more than 8,000 families (30,000 people) residing mostly within the Metro Atlanta area, but mostly in Gwinnett, Dekalb and Fulton counties. Most of them lack access to health care, do not have health insurance, and experience language and cost barriers. A minority of them has health insurance coverage provided by their employers, however they do not have the knowledge to navigate the system or the resources to pay high deductibles to access services.

About Us

Portal de Salud, Inc. was funded as a health ministry and later organized as a Georgia Non-Profit Organization and registered as a tax-exempt organization under the I.R.S. Section 501-C-3. We serve the Hispanic/Latino community mostly residing in Gwinnett County. Through our network of healthcare providers, academic partners, local clinics and resources, Portal de Salud, Inc. is connecting the community to primary care services, bringing health education and health screenings to help detect abnormalities and disease in the early stages.
