Discapacitados Abriendose Caminos
South Saint Paul, MN
This grant will help to fund Project Creando Futuros (Building Futures), which provides to Latino families who have disabled loved ones individualized one-to-one conversations and assistance to understand the disability and the services available. They receive professional assessments in a language that adjusts for their particular Spanish word use and level of literacy. This program helps to reduce isolation so often felt by families, and broadens their knowledge, self-worth, independence, and involvement in the community. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338).
