ALMA Peer Support for Women
ALMA (Amigas Latinas Motivando el Alma) is a peer support program for Latino and Hispanic women who are going through challenging times. If you are sad, lonely, worried, stressed or struggling, the ALMA program can give you the encouragement and empowerment to help you make changes. We understand that therapy is not always the right fit for everyone.
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. The program is free and currently offered virtually via Zoom.
If you are interested in enrolling, contact FIRC at 970-262-3888, email: email@example.com or fill out the ALMA referral form.
