Esperança, a Phoenix-based nonprofit whose mission is to improve health and restore hope both locally and globally, has named Aidee Covarrubias as the organization’s senior program coordinator.

Covarrubias will oversee Esperança’s relationship with HUD housing facilities and manage implementing its health education.

She is a native of Sonora, Mexico and has lived in Arizona since 1996. As an experienced promotora de salud (community health worker), Covarrubias’ bi-cultural background and passion for community service led her to many volunteer opportunities and community leadership roles.

She has completed the behavioral health sciences program at South Mountain Community College. In June 2018, Covarrubias received the Joel S. Meister Outstanding Community Health Worker Award from Arizona Community Health Workers Association.
