Training and Technical Assistance

Because of our history of providing culturally-responsive, trauma-informed care to under-resourced Latino families, we are often called upon to offer training and technical assistance to others. With funding from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and now The Duke Endowment, last year we launched La Mesita Latino Mental Health Provider Network – a statewide network to help reduce professional isolation and burnout among providers serving Latino families, and we are expanding other training and technical assistance activities. Read more about La Mesita here.

Research and Evaluation

El Futuro engages in research when it furthers our mission and helps the people we serve. We’re actively expanding applied research, program evaluation, and dissemination activities in strategic ways, with a long-term goal of developing into a national model and resource center for Latino mental health and substance use treatment services. El Futuro is now in a second year of partnership with RTI International toward this end. Read more about our research endeavors here.
