What we aim to solve

Our programs contains our 27-year history of knowledge and wisdom learned from Latino culturally-specific models we developed, with activities proven to address avoidable social inequities The model acknowledges and targets historical racial prejudices, contemporary injustices, economic disparities, and the health disparities of Latinos.
We were founded when there was no organization providing substance abuse services for the Spanish-speaking population in San Mateo County, especially for people involved in the court or criminal justice system. If you were on trial or perhaps already incarcerated, you only spoke Spanish and had an alcohol or drug problem, there was no Spanish alternative treatment opportunity for you, if you were in jail, you stayed in jail.
Now we operate state-licensed adult substance abuse recovery facilities, behavioral and mental health treatment, outpatient services with life-skills training, health education and prevention.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Be a driving force for increasing access to healthcare especially behavioral health substance abuse services to Latinos in San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

Enhance and expand our culturally-centered service model combining evidence base practices with a process for recovery rooted in Latino cultural traditions and family values.

Be a leader providing substance abuse recovery services for incarcerated adults (primarily Spanish-speaking) who are re-entering society.

Strengthen our presence and impact providing teen pregnancy prevention services and youth development in the rural farming communities of Cutler-Orosi.

Be a guide and advocate for teen mothers getting them on a path to success.

Operate a minimum 5 state-licensed recovery facilities with additional MD, LMFT, group trainings, and transportation services to address co-occurring disorders.

Ensure effective and efficient business operations, improve program alignment for drug medi-Cal certification, and increase capacity to `utilize available funding,

Increase the knowledge and involvement of parents as advocates for adding behavioral and mental health services supporting the youth in their communities.

Support and encourage staff to maintain and enhance substance abuse trainings for license/certification including El Joven Nobles and Xinatchli curriculum trainers.

Implement a Latino Conference to create connections, deepen engagement, and increase impact by embracing our culture and celebrating diversity and inclusion.

We recruit, train and maintain high quality, mission-driven staff, volunteers, and collaboration partners to develop resources, deepen connections and produce action.

We organize a training conference with 20 'experts in their field' regarding health and human services, behavioral and mental health for 200 counselors serving Latinos.

We engage people in local advocacy to ensure decision-makers are fully informed.

We ensure an inclusive and powerful experience respecting all cultures and people.

We involve clients in the design and preparation of their individual treatment plan.

We track and measure:
• Number of new clients receiving services, completing program, and graduating.

• Number and impact of people maintaining sobriety, reduced relapse, increased connections to family, friends, information and resources to live a life in recovery.

• CalOMS tx reports indicate outcomes, and compare to county and state averages

• Satisfaction Surveys where clients report improved treatment availability and affordability and access to quality health care that is culturally sensitive.

• Number of partnerships and deepening engagement with other organizations, community and other service providers, collaborators and funders.

• Conference attendance, post test scores and evaluations show reach and impact.

For 27 years offering the only Spanish-speaking, culturally-based, residential, substance abuse programs for men, women and mothers with child in Bay Area.

We are recognized as a catalyst for advancement in health and human services for Latinos, emphasizing the indigenous teachings of our ancestors.

We help reduce teen pregnancy rates in Cutler-Orosi (down 50% in 3 years). We still need reductions as the teen pregnancy rate is still much higher than the state average.

Our substance abuse clients have a 65% success rate for recovery which far exceeds the county and state averages.
