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.
"El Futuro's mission is to nurture stronger familias to live out their dreams. We are a nonprofit, outpatient clinic that provides comprehensive mental health services for Latino families in a bilingual environment of healing and hope. We provide direct treatment services to Spanish-speaking families (psychiatry, therapy, substance use disorder treatment, and case management), training to help others provide more effective services to Latino families, and community empowerment through a therapeutic green space and public art mural."
El Futuro's virtual doors remain open during the pandemic. For more information or to get involved, visit: https://elfuturo-nc.org/.
