Promotoras de Apoyo Familiar (PAF) Program

The Promotoras de Apoyo Familiar (PAF) program was created to engage promotoras to build their personal skills, knowledge, and experience to more effectively participate in their communities. Promotoras are a group of women that work in and outside of their own communities and participate in a variety of activities to learn more about mental well-being, community development, social services, and health. Promotoras de Apoyo Familiar expand and disseminate information about immigrant rights, immigration processes, labor issues, health, legal, and social services in a linguistically, culturally, and community-sensitive manner. The promotoras are an important bridge between colonia, immigrant families and services. We work with and train a cadre of promotoras who are interested in pursuing their knowledge and want to help their respective families and their communities.
