The East African Collaborative is pushing to sign up 300 City Heights residents for Obamacare before March 31.
"We have a hefty goal," said Yasmin Hamud, founder and executive director of the Center for Bridging Communities, one of eight organizations that make up the collaborative group.
Other members include The Horn of Africa, Huda Community Center, Nile Sisters, Somali Family Service, Somali Youth United, Southern Sudanese Community Center of San Diego and South Sudan Christian Youth and Community Organization.
The group started meeting in 2011, even before the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as constitutional.
Last year, the group did awareness and outreach, she said.
"This year, we [are in the] second phase, which is all enrollment," she said.
