About Creciendo Juntos
Creciendo Juntos means “growing together" and began in 2005 as a community effort to support Latino families living in Charlottesville and Albemarle. We are a leading Latino advocate and provide year round workshops, forums, and resources for Latinos and Latino-serving organizations. We are directed by a volunteer board and partner broadly to help strengthen Latino families' connections within our community.
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of individuals hoping to utilize our privilege as educators, attorneys, community
organizers and artists to make Charlottesville a better place for its Latinx community members.
WHAT WE DO
We serve as an information hub for local Latinx community members and the many organizations interested in improving their services to them.
We provide access to direct services and community resources through workshops, community meetings and a comprehensive website.
We identify and responds to needs of local Latinx residents through a vibrant network of Latinx individuals and Latinx-serving organizations, including CJ's two working groups on Education and Mental Health.
