In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country, the NNED selects a partner organization to highlight once a month. Servicios de La Raza has been selected as the Partner of the Month for October in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Servicios de La Raza (Servicios) is a bilingual human services organization founded in 1972 to serve Denver, Colorado’s low-income Spanish-speaking populations with linguistically and culturally responsive social services. Initially, Servicios was a licensed facility for the treatment of mental health and chronic mental illnesses. Two years later, the agency applied to Colorado’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division for funding and licensure as an approved alcohol and substance abuse treatment center. Servicios is now the preeminently recognized comprehensive health and human services agency addressing the needs of the Latino and other underserved and marginalized communities across the Denver metropolitan area and Colorado, providing services to more than 30,000 people a year.
Some of the programs and services that are currently offered:
- Substance Misuse Treatment and Prevention
- EMDR Therapy
- Individual, Couple, Family, and Group Therapy
- Mobile Health Unit
- AIDS Drug Assistance Program
Learn more about Servicios de La Raza and its mission to serve the most vulnerable members of the community who live on the margins and rarely have access to culturally responsive human services.
