Services for children and families: Our caseworkers provide comprehensive, wraparound human and social services for Latino families and children. The caseworkers intervene in crisis situations with direct assistance, referrals, and advocacy. Our agency distributes food boxes, clothing, and bus passes; provides access to transitional housing; and coordinates summer camp activities and recreational activities for children and families. We offer assistance to women and children in distress. Our agency is a Safe Place for runaway teenagers.
Employment advocacy: Our caseworkers and volunteers assist clients with job searches. They help clients prepare resumes and fill out job applications. We also offer direct assistance to workers searching for day labor opportunities.
