Community Education

Our community education programming is a hallmark of our commitment to the empowerment of the local Latino community. Although we are aware that the significance of the word “empowerment” has been diminished by its overuse, we continue to believe that genuine empowerment for low-income Latinos – by which we mean that we come to recognize and utilize our own potential and power – must remain our ultimate goal.

Our community education programming brings groups of low-income Latino community residents together for a period of weeks or months to explore the causes behind the serious hardships that face local Latinos and to work together to examine possible short- and long-term solutions. In recent years, these projects have included such issues as domestic violence, Latina women’s financial literacy, racism, and health education.
