to give Latinos
the resources they
need to thrive
You make these important programs possible:
Superación Personal is an online support group that meets every Tuesday and Wednesday and provides a safe, open space to discuss challenges and receive support to overcome them.
Meeting topics vary and could address cultural and family dynamics, stress and anxiety, etc. and supports on how to work through the issues.
Rincón de las Comadres
Rincón de las Comadres is a crafting program that meets 3x a week and brings Latinas together to share and learn from each other's skills and knowledge and to help them excel in their personal and professional lives.
One of the purposes of the program is to preserve Latino crafts and encourage participants to share the cultural experience with the next generation.
The Parent Project is a 16-week course that teaches parents of children up to 18 about raising children in a bicultural environment. Lessons cover healthy relationships, gangs, alcohol, and other challenges.
To support parent participation, we offer free childcare for children 0-6 years, and two separate youth groups for children 7-12 years, and teens 13-18, in order to help youth overcome their challenges and build leadership skills.
Mami y Yo
Created in partnership with First 5 Placer, the Mami y Yo program offers a safe space for parents of children age 0 -5 to connect with others and gain knowledge about childhood development. A public health nurse and other specialists join on occasion to answer health-related questions.
Our health fairs in Spanish create access to health care for hundreds of uninsured adults. Participants receive screenings on site, complete an assessment to identify their health concerns, and as needed, are linked to primary health providers as well as dental, vision, nutrition and other family resources.
A key part of our health access service is a Spanish-language program that focuses on nutrition education, physical fitness, blood sugar monitoring, and medications for those who have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes or who want to provide support to family members who have been diagnosed.
