Created by 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.
La Fuente strives, through the collaboration of its
members, to assist Latinos in Westchester to achieve their potential through a
vast array of services.
