Our goals include:
• Engaging Latino communities via grassroots events, programmatic initiatives, and social media.
• Collaborating with health experts to provide culturally relevant education in communities served.
• Empowering women to live their healthiest life.
• Partnering with other organizations to make a greater impact.

LatinaStrong women are powerful voices in our families and local communities. We believe a better health starts at home.
