January 2019 – The Share the Plate offering was for La Cocina, a program of The Family Center/La Familia.
“The program offers free-of-charge mental health services to monolingual Spanish-speaking families living in Larimer County. There are times in life when we all need extra care and support.
“La Cocina, or ‘The Kitchen’ in English, is named after the warmest, most inviting, and most nourishing place in our home. Our program offers a safe space for adults, children and families to come together for key Spanish-language therapy services, including recovery from trauma, forensic assessments for immigrants in detention, individual and/or family therapy, parents coaching, structured therapy groups for parents and adolescents, directive and non-directive play therapy to promote safe and healthy childhood development, and Charlas (talks) that sustain community well-being.”
Foothills Unitarian Church donated $8500 from a combination of the January offerings and a special appeal at the annual auction in November.
