Our programs are designed to support the following 3 key outcomes:
1) Public policy as well as local and regional planning decisions in East Palo Alto and the Mid-peninsula benefit Latino families’ well-being.
2) Latino parents engage in their children’s education, positioning them for success in pursuing higher education and/or vocational training.
3) Latino families successfully navigate service systems and access supports that advance their well-being and self-sufficiency.
