COMMUNITY

EDUCATION

La Paz’s Community Education & Engagement programs promote wholistic health, education, personal growth and cultural awareness.

With small, focused wellness classes and community building, all different types of individuals are brought together to propel our Latinx community forward.

FINANCIAL EDUCATION

Are you looking to purchase a house or car and need help opening a bank account and learning about credit lines and loans? You can achieve all this and more when you learn about budgeting, credit and more in our Family Finances class series with HomeSource!

We are currently accepting participants for our January 2021 class. Fee is $35. Email Jessica Cliche to register.

ENTRE NOSOTRAS

With the absence of supportive environments, some types of stress have long-term effects on the health and wellness of an individual. Because of this, our mission with our Entre Nosotras programs is to cultivate supportive relationships in an environment that is culturally and linguistically relevant to the Latinx community we serve.

 

Note: Our Cafecito Entre Nosotras meetings are currently being held via Zoom by invitation only. Contact Jessica Cliche for more details and to be part of our closed online community.

The focus of Cafecito Entre Nosotras is to provide a safe space for Latinx women to share with, celebrate, and support each other.

 

Note: We are currently on hiatus for our skills classes due to covid-19.

Entre Nosotras skills classes have a goal of providing necessary knowledge and skills to Latinx women that will be able to serve them in the future to provide a source of income for themselves, encouraging them towards self-sufficiency.
