Capacity Building


PASOs fortifies systems of care by building networks of organizations and service providers to better meet the needs of Latino families in a linguistically and culturally appropriate way. PASOs provides  trainings tailored to a variety of professional settings that cover topics such as cultural competency, rights awareness, and best practices for working with Latino communities.

Why is it important?

  • In order for families to receive the quality of care they deserve, there need to be improvements within organizational policies and procedures. This initiative works with organizations to better address these needs through capacity building which involves organizational assessments, developing strategic plans with measurable goals, ongoing technical support, and cultural competency trainings.

What have been the results?

  • Since the start of 2016, over 2100 service professionals have been trained by PASOs on how to build more effective relationships with Latino communities and families.
  • PASOs partners with over 200 organizations to improve well-being and quality of life for Latino families
