Puertas Abiertas works hand in hand with Latinos to inspire and achieve healthy living, self-sufficiency, and opportunities for leadership and community engagement.
Our vision at Puertas Abiertas is a healthy, integrated community where there is no underserved population and where everyone has equitable access to services, resources, and civic participation.
At Puertas Abiertas, we proactively solve problems and support our community’s rights to essential services. Expanding literacy, creating self-sufficiency, increasing well-being and productivity for Latinos means a happier, healthier, more economically vibrant community for everyone!
