CHA Recognized by Mayor Curtatone for Partnership with KIND and CHA Somerville Teen Connection at Somerville High


On December 13, 2018, CHA was honored by Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and the Board of Alderman for the work being done at our Teen Health Centers in partnership with KIND (Kids in Need of Legal Defense). Through a grant that Robert Marlin, MD, PhD, MPH initiated, Stephanie Bonilla, JD, from KIND offers free legal support to minors facing immigration challenges. If you know anyone who needs immigration legal support, please ask them to contact Stephanie Bonilla at 857-400- 9467.

CHA was publicly thanked for devoting time and effort to supporting immigrant families, neighbors, students, and residents. Somerville displays a deep commitment to protect the community's wonderful diversity, to uphold humane ideals and policies, and to remain a welcoming city where immigrants can both seek safe harbor and contribute to the fabric of the community.
