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, or Cecilia Martinez at 970-409-2890, email@example.com, or fill out the referral form below.
