Frequently asked questions

Too many individuals and families are trapped living in crisis and are never able to reach their potential or live independently because often they lack the support, skills, and resources to make that transformation possible. Adelante works closely with families as they identify and achieve their dreams. By providing educational opportunities, job support, financial management training, counseling, and other foundational support Adelante can better aid families in working towards goals that will lead them out of homelessness and towards a stabilization.

Adelante partners with families of all shapes and sizes. Families live in one of 27 housing units owned by La Puente while receiving intensive support and case management services from Adelante staff and AmeriCorps members. Each family works toward achieving a health interdependence and long-term stability, Adelante will partner with each family as long as is necessary to facilitate that goal.

Program highlights for families include:

  • Stable Housing
  • Goal-setting and achievement
  • Improved access to job training and education
  • Improved access to individual and family counseling
  • Parent workshops, Parent Cafe’s and education opportunities
  • Financial health training

Working Together: Partners with parents with early childhood aged children living in the San Luis Valley to improve their economic opportunities. Adelante works with families to improve their financial strength through educational and vocational advancement. Family Advocates ensure a family has access to the resources and opportunities while parents do the work necessary to advance their young families.

Family Services: This program seeks to help streamline the process for families to get what they need. After an initial assessment, families are streamlined into other Adelante programs or are matched and introduced to other programs and service providers to help ensure each family gets what they need.
