Community Partner Highlight: El Sol

El Sol was formed as a result of a community effort to transform the problem of an unsafe and contentious open-air day-labor market into a safe and productive resource center in which all people can achieve their highest potential.

El Sol is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the quality of life of all the residents of Northern Palm Beach County by providing services to those in need, especially day laborers and their families.

Jupiter Medical Center has been partnering with El Sol since November 2014, and in support of their mission, Registered Nurse and Certified Diabetes Educator, Siobhan Gross provides monthly healthy cooking demonstrations, education about diabetes prevention/diabetes management and other community resources in both Spanish and English.
