August 12 2019 – Clinics Can Help (CCH), Florida’s only nonprofit organization that collects and provides medical equipment and supplies for children and adults in need, is proud to announce the addition of Julio Mariaca to their team.
Mariaca, a veteran trainer in the nonprofit world will be working one-on-one with CCH clients to assure their access to appropriate medical equipment and supplies. “We’re very proud to have someone of Julio’s experience and wisdom on our staff,” said Owen O’Neill, Clinics Can Help’s CEO. “His language skills also help us to ensure we’re meeting the specific needs of so many of our clients.”
A West Palm Beach resident, Julio Mariaca has taught high school level mathematics and performed medical interpreter trainings for Trustbridge Hospice and the Glades Initiative.
Founded in 2005, Clinics Can Help is a place where individuals can donate their gently used medical equipment so it can be cleaned, refurbished and donated to people in need in the county. In the last year, Clinics Can Help assisted more than 2,800 clients new by donating more than $1.1 million worth of medical equipment and supplies.
“The model that Clinics Can Help employs to improve healthcare through the provision of medical equipment and supplies is something that I am honored to be a part of. We are ensuring access to a critical part of medical care that often gets overlooked or falls to the wayside due to costs. I am excited for the future and the work we can do together,” shared Mariaca.
In addition to collecting and donating gently used equipment, Clinics Can Help runs a KINDER Project which provides new and customized medical equipment for children with special needs, and a CRIBS program that provides new pack ‘n play cribs for newborn and infant children whose families cannot afford a safe sleep environment.
