The Latinos Making Connections initiative is aimed at better serving and identifying the needs of the Latino community. We work to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of Latino families in accessing community-based services for their children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
By connecting parents in the communities in which they live, the children will ultimately have a sense of community, better health, education and independence throughout their lifetime and the systems of care that support them.
This service is provided in a clear and engaging way that allows Latino families to feel connected to their culture and language. The program is grounded in the philosophy that individuals who have shared experiences provide a sense of acceptance, understanding, credibility and trustworthiness.
