Enlace Comunitario’s mission is to work to eliminate domestic violence in the Latino immigrant community and to promote healthy families through: comprehensive domestic violence intervention services in Spanish, preventative community education, policy advocacy and leadership development.
Enlace Comunitario offers a dynamic continuum of services for both victims of domestic violence and their children including: - safety planning - mental health assessment - individual and group counseling - referrals to services (housing, legal, health, financial, etc.) - parenting and life-skills classes - legal representation and advocacy - community education and crisis intervention Enlace Comunitario also has a leadership development program that trains former clients (adults and youth) to become engaged in our violence prevention efforts. After an intensive training our leaders work as community educators and assist in developing materials and messages that are aimed at changing the social norms that allow violence to occur. In addition, Enlace Comunitario works with other agencies and individuals in efforts to change public policy that affect immigrant victims. Our services are provided in Spanish and free of charge.
