What We Do

We are a Latinx-led organization, grounded in culturally-specific practices and services, that supports youth, Latinas, and families to reach their full potential. We provide important services in our communities in response to the needs of our communities.

Economic Empowerment

Our community faces many challenges. As many Latinx struggle with poverty, we work to strengthen youth, Latinas and families to move out of poverty. We’re taking people from poverty, to stability and beyond. We empower people to find living wage jobs, advance their careers, and build a strong foundation for themselves and their families.

Community Self-Determination

We believe in the self-determination of the Latinx community to solve our own problems. We work to eliminate disparities through systems change. Our programs support the development of youth, Latinas and families to be agents of change in the community. Our relationships within the Latinx and immigrant communities allow us to be a bridge for the community and for policymakers working to create equitable outcomes for our region. We promote advocacy and build civic leadership skills within our community to change systemic inequalities and fight for affordable housing, transportation improvements, climate justice and more

Cultural Appreciation

Our Cultural Appreciation programs express the historical importance of Latinx culture and instills a sense of belonging that is crucial to the identity of our community. These programs also help the Latinx community share our culture and values with others, allowing us to build bridges and connections with people from different backgrounds. Consejo Hispano views arts and culture as essential.
