El Futuro recognized with the September 2020 Triangle NC Cares Award, sponsored by Ricci Law Firm. El Futuro is a nonprofit, outpatient clinic that offers mental health services for Latino families.

El Futuro seeks to "meet the otherwise unmet need for bilingual mental health services for the growing Latino immigrant community in North Carolina." Starting at a volunteer effort in 2001, they have since expanded to include two clinics, in Durham and Siler City. This community-based effort became a nonprofit in 2004, and still relies on the generous support of individuals, organizations, grants, and awards like the September $1,000 Triangle NC Cares Award, proudly given by the Ricci Law Firm.
