is a new coalition of organizations committed to providing current resources
and information on benefits, employment, social services, health, and education
to the Spanish speaking population in Westchester County.
vision is to be The Source of information for Latinos in Westchester County and
to provide a centralized site where Spanish speaking individuals can access
resources and information that will improve the quality of their lives.
the Westchester Independent Living Center, La Fuente is a unique coalition of
organizations united by a mutual commitment to reach the Latin Community in
Westchester County. Before La Fuente, there was no one place where Spanish
speaking persons could access information on benefits, employment, social
services, health and wellness, and education. The diverse information was
available, but it was being offered in various locations, which made accessing
it that much more difficult. By having information from different fields and
different providers all on one site on the Internet - LaFuenteNY.org - the
information is easier to find and is easily reached 24 hours a day.
Fuente strives, through the collaboration of its members, to assist Latinos
in Westchester to achieve their potential through a vast array of services.
