The Latino Family Counseling
Center (LFCC) of La Alianza Hispana (LAH) prides itself on providing
culturally and linguistically sensitive services to Latinos. Treatment
is available on an individual and group basis, but the LFCC strives
to include family in the process, looking at intergenerational,
economic, and political factors that impact mental health and substance
abuse behaviors. LAH also trains social service agencies about cultural
sensitivity, provides mentors to help families find community resources,
teaches better parenting skills, and sponsors the Safe Families
and Teens Initiative for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender
youth and their families.
