Consejo Hispano offers Latinx community members holistic programs and the tools to achieve self-determination in the areas of leadership, education, health, advocacy & civic engagement, and financial empowerment.
We believe that everyone deserves to have access to quality education regardless of his or her place of origin or the language spoken at home. Our programs are designed to be culturally-specific and meet the needs of the family. As an organization, we have made a commitment to become active partners with our school districts, the Northwest Regional Education School District (NWRESD) and the Early Learning Council to help create more equitable and culturally responsive education programs.
We believe in inspiring youth in their academic studies, leadership development and career exploration. Every day we stand with our youth as they pursue their dreams. We are committed to ensuring that Latinx youth have the resources and support they need to achieve those dreams.
For many of our families, navigating the health care system can be a stressful experience and can sometimes lead to confusion. We provide the community with the assistance of learning how to navigate our local health care resources. We also conduct educational workshops throughout the year and assist with the Oregon Health Plan application process.
We are part of, VIDA, which is a collaborative of agencies offering Individual Developmental Accounts (IDAs) to individuals and families. An IDA is a matched savings account that enables families with limited financial resources to save and build assets. IDAs are about more then receiving match money. For example, building skills that will help individuals and their families move up the ladder of self-sufficiency.
Our strategy involves giving our community a platform through which they can express their concerns, share their stories and provide feedback on all aspects of civic life, from healthcare to their children’s education. We believe that both adults and youth with the right tools and knowledge can be effective advocates for their community and change systems and institutions to be more responsive to the needs of the community.
