We are an interdisciplinary team of bilingual and bicultural professionals
We are professionals, with extensive experience in the field of health, education, communication and the arts, who have migrated from Latin American countries to the United States in recent decades.
Our own migration experience gives us the recognition of the needs of the Latino community particularly the immigrant and his family, and guides us in the creation of programs in order to improve their quality of life , strengthen their family, neighborhood and community ties, emphasizing respect and tolerance among individuals.
Our philosophy is to understand each individual in their particular experience
and accompany them in the realization of their projects
while promoting social bond in a production space with others.
