Frequently Asked Questions

If I can’t come to the walk-in clinic hours, may I make a first time appointment at another time?

Answer: First time or returning clients need to attend an intake assessment (initial session), which we only offer during our Walk-In Clinic hours (Mon – Thurs, 9am-12p). Once someone completes the registration and intake (initial) session, you may schedule appointments at your convenience. 

How long do I have to wait to schedule follow-up session after the intake?

Answer: With our new Walk-In Clinic, we are excited to be able to offer follow-up appointments within  7 – 14  business days.

How much will I have to pay for my visits?

Answer: At El Futuro we offer services at an accessible cost. There are many different insurances and payers with varied copays. In effort to make this as simple as possible, we will discuss payment during your registration prior to the intake session. We believe that our clients have the right to have all their questions answered prior to enrolling in our services. We also offer fee reductions for individuals who are unable to pay for services. We are committed to increase access to behavioral health services, and will work with clients to enable them to receive the treatment that they need.

El Futuro and AHEC bring help for struggling teenagers and hard-working mental health providers

October 15, 2015 – Today over 100 mental health clinicians took part in a groundbreaking training designed to teach them powerful new tools to help North Carolina’s most vulnerable teenagers.

Integrated Treatment of Complex Trauma for Adolescents (ITCT-A) is a two-day training for professional who work with North Carolina teens who are experiencing deteriorating mental health. Youth affected by trauma are a challenge because traumatic experiences hit at the core of youths’ identity and functioning. Yet, adults often only see high risk and disruptive behavior. This training will help providers help hurting adolescents in spite of deep budget cuts to North Carolina’s mental health system. El Futuro and NC-AHEC (Area Health Education Centers) are pushing this powerful collaboration forward to bring needed resources to our state. Today’s training is the start.

“When kids have suffered so much, whether it be through human trafficking and prostitution, abuse by a family member, or violence from gangs in their country of origin, we need tools to address the complex trauma these experiences represent. These kids are really hurting,” says Karla Siu, clinical social worker and therapist at El Futuro. “We also are helping ‘unaccompanied minors,’ children who have come to the US alone fleeing violence back home.”

Along with AHEC and El Futuro, partners including the National Child Traumatic Stress Network and USC Adolescent Trauma Training Center have brought the training to North Carolina.

Our Organization

El Futuro is a young and dynamic organization  that has attracted national recognition for its pioneering work to provide mental health and substance abuse services to Latino families in central North Carolina.

 Many of those we help have experienced sexual abuse, physical abuse, human trafficking, migration trauma, and many other traumas associated with poverty and immigration.  Over the last 12 months, we served more people than ever (1,680) with more sessions (9,651) but maintained an average of about 6 visits per person – help provided that is not just crisis-oriented but also having long term impact.

 

 Our staff and agency have received numerous honors including the 2006 Mental Health Association in North Carolina Heroes in the Fight Award, 2007 North Carolina Latino Diamante Award, and 2007 Citizen Award from the Independent Weekly . El Futuro was named as one of two “AHEC Centers of Excellence.” 

Our most impressive achievement, however, is with each individual who achieves success! Those who come to us recover from their illness, refer family and friends, and value our support as we help them take steps toward a brighter “Futuro.”

The Learning Trail Collaborative

In collaboration with a spirited group of volunteers in Chatham County and the UNC School of Social Work, we are working to help transform the Nature Trail community.  Beginning several years ago, a group of volunteers began tutoring children attending nearby elementary and middle schools.  As they got to know the children and families they grew concerned about the mental health of  several of those children.  Learning problems and behavior problems originated from untreated mental health issues.  We’ve collaborated to take real and practical steps in order to offer needed help.  This last summer we hosted an intern who helped move the project forward.

Here’s an 8 minute video where you can learn more:

El Proyecto de Manos

Copy of IMG_1223

En respecto de intimidad y confidencialidad, El Futuro protege la identidad de la gente que ayuda. Sin embargo, compartir el trabajo de El Futuro con otros es importante para muchas razones. Otros se animan y inspiran por el trabajo de El Futuro y el impacto positivo que tiene en la comunidad — este incluye miembros de la comunidad Latino y miembros de la comunidad que no es Latino. Algunos estan animados a venir al El Futuro para ayuda que previamente no creían estaba disponible. Algunos vuelven y ayudanos a crecer el trabajo. Otros hacen un contribución para apoyar a El Futuro. 

El Proyecto de Manos es una manera en que El Futuro puede compartir las historias de éxitos con otros, porque el proyecto protege los identidades de individuales pero al mismo tiempo permite contar las historias en una manera única. Al final de tratamiento o en algún tiempo durante el tratamiento, un médico de El Futuro y su cliente puede decidir a celebrar el progresso por participando en El Proyecto de Manos. Toman una foto de los manos del cliente que hacen algo que tiene relacion a la manera de su mejora o que es un símbolo de su éxito. Enmarca la foto; una se da al cliente; una se pone en la pared de la sala de espera en El Futuro donde otros puede leer una descripción corta del éxito y tomar aliento.

Para Iglesias y Congregaciones

El Futuro busca complementar los servicios de asesoramiento espiritual basado ​​en la fe (consejería pastoral) y la ayuda a través de una asociación con las iglesias y las congregaciones locales.

Lo que El Futuro se puede brindar para Iglesias y Congregaciones.
A menudo, las luchas que los individuos y las familias enfrentan van más allá de lo que es apropiado para la consejería pastoral. El Futuro acepta muchas referencias y actúa como un recurso para las iglesias y congregaciones de todas las religiones. Mientras que El Futuro no es una organización basada en la fe, muchos de nuestros empleados son “basados en la fe.” Nuestro trabajo en El Futuro es fruto de nuestra fe y compartimos el amor a diario con las personas marginadas, rotas, y sufriendo.

It’s a Wonderful Life

The following is an excerpt of a blog written recently by Mimi Chapman, Ph.D., UNC CH School Associate Professor of Social Work.

Like many people, my favorite Christmas movie is It’s a Wonderful Life.  George Bailey who works tirelessly for the people of the community he loves becomes discouraged in the face of evil and loses his faith that anything he has done makes a difference.  Through mystical means he is given a chance to know all that he has done by seeing briefly what the world would be like without him.  

The analogy is obvious, What would this community be like without El Futuro?  

  • Three clinics providing evidence-based bicultural/bilingual mental health services would not exist.  
  • Multiple schools would not have bicultural/bilingual on-site services provided to their new immigrant/children of immigrant kids.  
  • There are mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, and uncles, people who work two and three jobs in our communities, who would remain depressed, ridden with anxiety, burdened by post-traumatic stress, and addicted because there was not an agency that could provide services that would help them.  (El Futuro’s success rates are quite impressive.)
  • UNC’s emergency room and crisis services would be over-burdened causing other patients not to get the quality of care that they need.  

Teachers can teach all children more easily when children in need are having those needs met.  To quote Clarence Odd Body, Angel Second Class, “It is strange isn’t it, how every life affects another…”  Not to mention the classic scene when there’s a run on the bank and George has to better.  It ends with friends pitching in and coming to his aid.   explain how a community is interdependent and the consequences of giving up that interdependence. The story of course doesn’t end with George having a realization and feeling

So if you’re looking for a worthy cause this holiday season, if you want to do something that will, in the spirit of the season, ‘welcome in the stranger,’ then check out the good work of El Futuro and throw some money in George Bailey’s basket.  www.nc-elfuturo.org

As 2013 draws to a close we want to thank you for your support of El Futuro.  

Over the past year your support enabled us to serve over 1,500 people with high quality mental health and substance abuse treatment; impacting over 5,000 family members.  

We offered a refuge for many who otherwise didn’t have anywhere to turn.

 

 

 

FYI:  2013 IRA Charitable Rollover 

Earlier this year, Congress extended the IRA charitable rollover through Dec. 31, 2013, allowing individuals aged 70½ and older to make tax-free distributions to charitable nonprofits from their individual retirement accounts (IRAs). By North Carolina tax law, these distributions are not income exclusions on state taxes in 2013. However, North Carolina taxpayers who use the IRA charitable rollover this year can include the amount of their distributions toward their charitable deduction or non-itemizer tax credit on their state taxes. If you are interested in using this IRA rollover consult with your tax advisor for more information .
 
 
 

¡Celebrations!

      (some staff “celebrations” from recent team meetings)

Brigitte and Roberto celebrate a teenage girl who had a serious head injury playing soccer over a year ago.  After losing memory, having extreme sensitivity to light and temperature changes, and dropping out of school, her injury improved but she began to suffer from severe depression and anxiety.  Over the last 6 months we worked with her school and family.  She came in last week happy and proud of being able to make a class presentation and her family shared her report card and beamed.

Luke and Michelle celebrate helping a young adolescent boy who has struggled for several years getting picked on by other children.  He has anxiously walked home from the school bus each day with fear of being beat up.  Paralyzing anxiety led him to doubt himself and fail in school but with help from El Futuro he is now making new friends and has a couple of buddies who he hangs out with at the bus stop in the mornings and sometimes goes to their homes after school when his homework is done.

Christa celebrates the father of one of the children she has treated in therapy.  He recently came to therapy for the first time and has shown a renewed desire to be in his child’s life.

Hands Project

In respect of privacy and confidentiality, El Futuro IMG_1383protects the identity of those helped.  However, sharing the work of El Futuro with others is important for many reasons.  Others are encouraged and inspired by the work of El Futuro and the positive impact it has on the community – this includes members of the Latino community and non-Latino community.  Some are encouraged to come to El Futuro for help they previously didn’t think was available or for a problem they didn’t think could be helped.  Some are prompted to volunteer and help grow the work.  Others are prompted to make a contribution to support El Futuro.

 

The Hands Project is a way El Futuro can share stories of success with others because it shelters the identity of individuals but allows their story to be told in a unique way!  At the end of treatment or at some point along the way, an El Futuro clinician and their client may decide to celebrate the progress by participating in the Hands Project.  A picture is taken of the client’s hands – doing something related to their improvement or symbolic of their success.  The picture is framed and:  One is given to the client.  One is placed on the wall in the El Futuro waiting room where others can read a short description of the success and be encouraged.

Voluntariado Con Nosotros

Los voluntarios hacen posible que podamos mejorar la vida de la comunidad latina de Carolina del Norte. Ayúdanos a hacer una diferencia positiva en las vidas de los niños latinos y sus familias, mediante la donación de su tiempo y experiencia. Las siguientes son las áreas de necesidad de voluntarios.

Por favor, póngase en contacto con volunteer@elfuturo-nc.org si usted está interesado en participar.

 Oportunidades

 Equipo de Alcance

¿Quiere practicar español y conectarse con la comunidad latina local? Únese a nuestro equipo Outreach! Alcance, El Equipo de Alcance de El Futuro está compuesto por un grupo de líderes de la comunidad comprometido que asisten a las ferias de salud, festivales y eventos publicitarios como representante de El Futuro.

 Asistencia Administrativa

Necesitamos ayuda confiable con el trabajo administrativo. Ayudar por unas horas con las diversas tareas de oficina significaría un ahorro de tiempo y dinero que podemos destinar a nuestros clientes.

 Cuidado de niños

Muchos de nuestros clientes no tienen opciones confiables para el cuidado de niños mientras asisten a sus terapias y por lo tanto se ven obligados a llevar a sus hijos a las citas y clases grupales para padres. Usted puede ayudar a nuestros clientes cuidando a sus hijos durante sus sesiones lo que les permitirá concentrarse más plenamente y beneficiarse de su tiempo con el terapeuta.

Para Los Donantes

Cuando llegó por primera vez a El Futuro, durante su octavo grado, tenía problemas para mantener la cabeza en alto y no podía dejar de llorar a causa de su tristeza. Con pensamientos de abandono, se sentía molesta y decepcionada de sí misma. Ella había dejado de escuchar las palabras de su familia. Se enteró de El Futuro a través de una presentación que hicimos en su escuela. Tras un período de tratamiento con medicación psiquiátrica se sintió menos triste, más esperanzada y la sonrisa volvió a lindo rostro.

Durante el noveno grado ingresó al equipo de fútbol y en el décimo celebró su quinceñero. En el 11 º grado se tomó su primera clase de AP. A principios de esta primavera, recibió una carta de UNC Chapel Hill felicitandola. Ella nos envió un correo electrónico que decía: “Gracias por ayudarme y animarme!” Firmado:” A fresh new Tar Heel to be!” Se graduó de la escuela secundaria en junio!

 

Cuando las familias latinas de Carolina del Norte vienen a nuestras clínicas encuentran terapeutas que hablan español y que ofrecen terapia de primera categoría para las enfermedades mentales y los trastornos de abuso de sustancias. Sin embargo, los recortes en la financiación pública hace cada vez más dificil proporcionar un ciclo completo de tratamiento.

Hasta antes de los recortes un paciente recbìa el ciclo completo de  atención psiquiátrica y terapia individual o de grupo. Ahora sólo podemos ofrecer 8 sesiones de terapia para cada paciente, dejando un vacío crítico en la atención de muchos.

El Futuro necesita tu ayuda para dar tratamiento a largo plazo.

Por ejemplo, debemos tener un adicional de $250 para proporcionar 4 sesiones para cada paciente que necesita ayuda extra.

Comunidad

Abordar las barreras a la atención:
El personal y los voluntarios de El Futuro ayudan a educar y disminuir el estigma paralizante de la salud mental y la enfermedad de adicción. Dado que los inmigrantes latinos tradicionalmente dependen de la familia, las redes sociales y los servicios informales y no tradicionales, buscamos maneras de interactuar con ellos en esos entornos.

Gran parte de nuestra comunicación ocurre a través de las escuelas y otras organizaciones latinas de servicios comunitarios, iglesias y clínicas de atención primaria. También asistimos a ferias de salud y ferias y festivales comunitarias. A menudo se puede escuchar personal de El Futuro en estaciones de radio y televisión en español o leer artículos de periódicos en español. Todos estos foros y medios de comunicación ayudan a promover la educación y la conciencia y a reducir el estigma.

Para Iglesias y Congregaciones

El Futuro busca complementar los servicios de asesoramiento basados en la fe espiritual (consejería pastoral) y ayudar a través de una asociación con las iglesias locales y las congregaciones.

 

¿Qué puede proporcionar El Futuro a las Iglesias y Congregaciones?

El Futuro actúa como un recurso para las iglesias y congregaciones de todos los credos. Aunque El Futuro no es una organización basada en la fe religiosa, muchos de nuestros empleados si se “basan en ella”. Nuestro trabajo en El Futuro es fruto de la fe y el amor que compartimos a diario con personas que son marginadas y que sufren.

Los grupos religiosos pueden apoyar nuestro trabajo a través de:

  • Proporcionar espacio, apoyo logístico, cuidado de niños, comida y apoyo financiero a los programas para padres que ayuden a fortalecer a las familias latinas.  Esta es una excelente manera de llegar a la comunidad latina!
  • Apoyo financiero que permita a El Futuro seguir ayudando en la salud mental y abuso de sustancias a los miembros de la comunidad que no tienen a donde acudir para tratar su enfermedad.

Estamos agradecidos a nuestros socios actuales:

 

Líderes de Lengua Española Fe Almuerzos

Españolas líderes religiosos hablan invitan a asistir a nuestras reuniones de almuerzo en curso donde discutimos la fe y la salud mental, cómo trabajar mejor juntos, cómo no se queme, y otros temas.

Nuestra Misión

Copy of IMG_1223

En El Futuro tenemos como misión fortalecer a toda la comunidad ofreciendo tratamientos de salud mental y abuso de sustancia basados en la compresión cultural y bilingüe para aquellas personas necesitadas de habla hispana y sus familias. Hacemos esto al ofrecer: 1) Servicios clínicos de alto impacto (basados en evidencias); 2) formación de los profesionales que trabajan con esta población; y 3) la prevención, educación y difusión en la comunidad.

Share Button

Nuestra Historia

El Futuro comenzó cuando un grupo de psiquiatras, médicos, trabajadores sociales y líderes comunitarios, todos voluntarios, reconocieron la necesidad de brindar atención de salud mental y abuso de sustancias para atender a la creciente población latina de Carolina del Norte. Muchas reuniones durante las noches y los fines de semana fueron necesarias para que este grupo pudiera compartir la visión que daría origen, a finales del 2004, a El Futuro como entidad sin fines de lucro.

Los últimos diez años han sido dificil  para las agencias publicas de salud mental de Carolina del Norte. Los recortes presupuestarios y la falta de planificación llevaron a la deserción del personal, el fraude y a las prácticas poco éticas de muchas agencias que ofrecen estos servicios de salud mental. Al mismo tiempo, la población inmigrante ha continuado creciendo de manera exponencial.  Las necesidades de esta comunidad han desafiado a un sistema estatal de salud mental diezmado. Durante estos años, El Futuro ha construido un programa estable, basado en asociaciones sólidas y prácticas sanas.

 Testimonios

 “Sólo quería dar las gracias a todos ustedes por hacer de mi año en El Futuro un gran año. No sólo aprendí mucho del trabajo social-sabio, yo no podría haber pedido un mejor grupo de personas para trabajar. Cada uno de ustedes es extremadamente talentoso, cariñoso y bueno en lo que hace. Gracias por “enseñarme las cuerdas”, haciendo mis prácticas de campo una experiencia muy positiva! “

Kate Ferrell- Interno de UNC Escuela de Trabajo Social

“No puedo decirle cómo su invaluable guía me ha ayudado. Actualmente estoy en una clínica de Ob-Gyn todos los miércoles y más de la mitad de mis pacientes hablan español. Es dificil expresar brevemente lo mucho que todo el personal de El Futuro me ha ayudado a aprender de cómo acercarse a los pacientes de una manera respetuosa y servicial. Ustedes literalmente me hicieron un mejor psiquiatra … “

Marcus Wellen, MD – Residente de psiquiatría

Testimonials

“I just wanted to thank all of you for making my year at El Futuro a great one. Not only did I learn a lot from being there social work-wise, but I could not have asked for a better group of people with whom to work. Each of you is extremely talented, caring, and good at what you do. Thanks for “showing me the ropes” and making my field placement a really positive experience!”

Kate Ferrell – UNC School of Social Work Intern

“I can’t tell you how invaluable your guidance has been lately. I’m currently in an Ob-Gyn clinic every Wednesday and more than half of my patients speak Spanish only. I have a hard time expressing succinctly how much the entire staff at El Futuro has helped me learn how to approach patients in a respectful and helpful way. You guys literally made me a better psychiatrist…and I was happy to be along for the ride.”

Volunteer With Us


Volunteers make it possible for us to improve the lives of North Carolina’s Latino community. Help us make a positive difference in the lives of Latino children and their families, by donating your time and experience. Please contact Sarelli Rossi at grossi@elfuturo-nc.org if you are interested in getting involved.

 

 

 The following are the areas of need for volunteers:

Outreach Team

Do you want to practice your spanish and connect with the local Latino community?  Join our Outreach Team! El Futuro’s Outreach Team is comprised of a committed group of community leaders who attend health fairs, festivals and publicity events as a representative of El Futuro.

Administrative Assistance
We need reliable help with administrative work. Helping for a few hours with various office tasks means we are able to save time and money that can go to our clients.

Childcare
Many of our clients lack reliable childcare options, and thus are forced to bring their children with them to appointments and group parenting classes. You can assist our clients by watching their children during their sessions thereby allowing them to more fully focus and benefit from their time with the therapist.

For those who are already volunteering their time, we have created a Volunteer Sign-In Sheet to properly track your hours and recognize your efforts.

For Donors

When she first came to El Futuro during her eighth grade year, she had trouble   holding her head up and couldn’t stop crying because of her sadness.  With thoughts of dropping out, she felt upset and disappointed in herself. She had stopped hearing the words from her family and bristled when advice was given to her. She found out about El Futuro through a presentation we did at her school. Through therapy and a period of treatment with psychiatric medication, she became less sad, more hopeful and the smile returned to her pretty face. During her 9th grade year she made the soccer team. During her 10th grade year, she celebrated her Quincenera. In the 11th grade she took her first AP class. Earlier this Spring she received a letter from UNC Chapel Hill congratulating her. She sent us an email that said, “Thank you for helping me and encouraging me!” It was signed, “A fresh new Tar Heel to be!” She graduated from high school in June!

When Latino families in central North Carolina come to our clinics, they meet with Spanish-speaking therapists who provide top-notch therapy for mental illness and substance abuse disorders.  But due to cutbacks in public funding we are increasingly unable to provide a full course of treatment.  Until recently, our patients were able to receive a full course of treatment– psychiatric care and individual or group therapy.  Now we typically can provide only 8 sessions of therapy for each patient, leaving a critical gap in care for many.

El Futuro needs your help to provide longer term treatment.

For instance, we must raise an additional $250 to provide 4 sessions for each patient who needs extra help.

Outreach

           

Addressing barriers to care:

El Futuro’s staff and volunteers conduct community outreach to  help educate and reduce the paralyzing stigma of mental health and addiction illness. Since Latino immigrants traditionally rely on family, social networks, and non-traditional informal services we look for ways to interact with them in those settings.  Much of our outreach happens through schools, other Latino community service organizations, churches and primary care clinics.  We also attend health fairs and community fairs and festivals.  Often you can hear El Futuro on Spanish-language radio and television stations or read articles in Spanish language newspapers.  All of these forums and media help promote education, awareness and reduce stigma.

Churches and Congregations

 

El Futuro seeks to complement faith based spiritual counseling services (ie. pastoral counseling) and help through a partnership with local churches and congregations.

 

What El Futuro Can Provide for Churches and Congregations

Often the struggles individuals and families face goes beyond what is appropriate for pastoral counseling. El Futuro accepts many referrals and acts as a resource for churches and congregations of all faiths. While El Futuro is not a faith-based organization, many of our staff are “faith-based.”  Our work at El Futuro is a fruit of our faith and we share love daily with people who are marginalized, broken, and suffering.

Faith groups can support our work by:

  • Providing space, logistical support, childcare, food, and financial support for parent programs that strengthen Latino families.  This is an excellent way to reach out to the Latino community!
  • Providing financial support for El Futuro to provide more in-depth mental health and substance abuse services to community members who have nowhere else to turn as they deal with their illnesses.


We are thankful for our recent and current partners:

 

Spanish Speaking Faith Leaders Lunches

Spanish speaking faith leaders are welcome to attend our ongoing lunch meetings where we discuss faith and mental health, how to work together better, how to not burn out, and other topics.  Contact our director Luke Smith for more information at lsmith@elfuturo-nc.org.

She loved the north, but in 2006 her husband joined the Army and was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC– so Alvely decided to give the south a try! She loves living here, but having to learn to drive to get anywhere was a challenge on top of the cultural shock she experienced after years of living in a big city like NYC. After moving to North Carolina, Alvely completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and then attended the Virtual Academic Center at the University of Southern California to get her MSW. She is now working on completing her LCSW. In her free time, Alvely likes to spend time with her husband and take part in grueling workout bootcamps!

Our History

El Futuro began when a group of volunteer psychiatrists, doctors, social workers and community leaders recognized a need for culturally appropriate mental health and substance abuse care for central North Carolina’s growing Latino population. Meeting during evenings and weekends, this group shared a vision and soon incorporated El Futuro as a nonprofit in 2004.

The last ten years have been a “stormy season” for North Carolina’s public mental health agencies.  Budget cuts and poor planning has unfortunately led to staff desertion, fraud and unethical practices by many agencies offering public mental health services. Over the same period of time, the immigrant population has continued to grow exponentially. The needs of this growing Latino community have challenged an already frail state behavioral health system. During this time, El Futuro has built a stable program based upon solid partnerships and sound practices.
