Paloma Suarez and a youth volunteer.

With the onset of COVID-19 back in March, our SCI AmeriCorps member serving at the South End Community Health Center , Paloma Suarez, quickly adapted her service activities in order to assist local residents. Her service was recently highlighted in a WBUR 90.9 FM article and radio story about how AmeriCorps programs are responding to COVID.

SCI is proud to be able to support pandemic response efforts in metro Boston through our amazing members in the SCI AmeriCorps Program. You can read more about Paloma’s compelling story, as well as how others AmeriCorps members have been serving during this time by clicking the button below.
