Community Health Resource Center
The Community Health Resource Center (Resource Center), located near the heart of Albuquerque, provides access to various resources that help support healthy living and social services to help improve overall health. Funded by the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation, the Resource Center offers a variety of resources and classes to the Albuquerque community.
In addition to the main Resource Center, we also have community-focused resources at a variety of our facilities and locations, including Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center and Presbyterian Medical Group at Las Estancias. Access to resources has expanded to other statewide communities through virtual classes and programs.
Teaching kitchens offer a space to come together to learn healthy cooking and other self-care skills. Our registered dietitians host nutrition cooking classes and we partner with local experts and organizations to offer additional classes that are free and open to the community. The kitchen spaces at the Resource Center, PMG at Las Estancias, and Santa Fe Medical Center are made possible in part by Renal Medicine Associates and the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation.
Community Meeting and Activity Space
This large space is used for a variety of community meetings and fitness classes.
The Community Garden at the Resource Center was designed by International District Urban Agriculture as a teaching garden for community members to learn more about gardening and growing their own fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. Virtual gardening classes are also provided.
The garden was awarded “Excellence in the Constructed Category” in the Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) Awards for the Middle Rio Grande Valley through the Arid Low Impact Development (LID) Coalition.
Community Health Worker Assistance
Community health workers at Presbyterian assist with linking and coordinating patients with resources in the community. We focus on key areas such as access to healthy food, transportation, utilities, housing, personal safety and more. Community health workers can also help advocate and brainstorm ideas with patients to help them in meeting their needs. Patients are often connected with community health workers while in the hospital or at a clinic and can also meet with them at the Resource Center.
