We want to empower you and help you find the right support for your physical and mental health care. We understand that finding the right resources can be frustrating and challenging. Our Health Navigators can help break down barriers and guide you to the care that you need, whether it is health insurance, mental health support or a peer support program.

ALMA Peer Support for Latino Women

What is stronger than a woman? A woman united with other women. If you are a Latina woman in Summit County, you are invited to be a part of ALMA (Amigas Latinas Motivando el Alma). 

ALMA provides an alternative for support and conversation. The program hosts monthly group sessions and then pairs women with a peer mentor, a companera, who has faced similar challenges and completed the program. You will learn strategies to relieve stress, take care of yourself, and how to achieve your goals in a confidential environment.

The free ALMA program can give you the encouragement and empowerment to help you make changes. The program is in Spanish and currently offered virtually via Zoom. Please watch the video for more information.

If you are interested in enrolling, contact FIRC at 970-262-3888, email: pattyg@summitfirc.org or fill out the ALMA form below.
