In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country, the NNED selects an organization to highlight once a month. La Frontera Arizona has been selected as the Partner of the Month for September in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
For 50 years, La Frontera Arizona has been committed to working collaboratively with public and private partners to solve community problems. They have the resources and expertise to address issues related to behavioral health, affordable housing, children and youth, employment, crisis intervention/suicide prevention, military veterans, and community and cultural education.
La Frontera Arizona works hard to build personal responsibility, to stabilize families, and to assist individuals in achieving their recovery goals. And that makes communities safer, stronger, and healthier.
