Each year El Futuro provides healing and hope for Latino families seeking help with behavioral health challenges. The families we serve face the same kinds of mental health issues (like anxiety and depression) as others in our community, and yet often face language or other barriers to seeking treatment. Additionally, the risk for depression and anxiety can be heightened by cultural, social and linguistic isolation. Many of those we serve have experienced sexual abuse, physical abuse, human trafficking, migration trauma, and many other traumas associated with poverty and immigration.
At El Futuro, Latino families find a welcoming refuge of bilingual and bicultural staff who focus on helping them get back to the bright future they have imagined. We are known not only for our commitment to providing high quality, evidence-based behavioral health services to members of the Latino community, but for doing so in a caring, respectful, and culturally aware environment.
In contrast to what many healthcare organizations are able to do, El Futuro serves people seeking behavioral health care regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. And we focus on providing the services that will be most effective for the individual and the entire family, regardless of eligibility for reimbursements from managed care organizations or others.
In fact, only about 40% of our services are reimbursed by third-party payors.
This approach is only possible because of the generous support of individuals, churches, corporations, and grantmakers across the Triangle Region and beyond.
