Initiatives (Programs)

 

Immigration Clinic

BridgesofHope

 

Bridges of Hope focuses on children and youth, providing after-school tutoring for children, volunteer opportunities for youth, and ESOL classes for parents.  Its goal is to build stronger families through education and opportunity.

 

Project Cinco Panes-logo

 

Cinco Panes is LUCHA’s food pantry, run by and for Latino immigrants.  The foods provided to families are chosen specifically for immigrant families, by immigrants themselves.

 

LUCHA also provides:

Counseling and Pastoral Care.  LUCHA works with local mental health providers and offers services in Spanish, primarily focusing on family or cultural issues, grief and loss, or mild depression.  We also serve in a pastoral role for those without a specific church affiliation.

Case Management, Information and Referral.  We serve as the connecting point for many clients who are interacting with multiple systems in our community, helping point them to resources and ensuring that they gain access to services.  We also serve as a resource for other agencies in our community.
