Project Protect

Reconnecting Communities

Project Description

Healthy House works to improve access to healthcare for the multi-ethnic communities in Merced County. In recent studies, as many as 25% of later in life women report physical and mental health symptoms related to isolation.  In collaboration with Healthy House, the Project Protect Engineering Service Learning team is developing a system to aid these women in reestablishing community connections. Through this system, local community organizations will be able to more efficiently support these valued members of their community. The Reconnecting Communities project is expected to be delivered in April 2021.
