servicios de la raza To provide and advocate for culturally responsive, essential human services and opportunities


services for the people We strive to provide and advocate for culturally responsive, essential human services and opportunities. These services are intended to assist low-income members of the community in overcoming the range of problems that result in a lack of resources and contribute to the perpetuation of the vicious cycle of poverty. Because of the value placed on the community, culture and language, Servicios de La Raza serves as an integral part of the heart of the Latino community in Metro Denver, a trusted and accessible community resource strategically linked with many of Metro Denver’s schools and churches. Equally important, Servicios de La Raza is also a primary service referral channel for many human services agencies and institutions in the Metro Denver region as they encounter Latino clientele.

OUR LEADERS michael sawaya BOARD PRESIDENT Dear Community, During the fiscal year 2015-2016, it was my pleasure and honor to serve as the President of the Board of the social services agency Servicios de La Raza in Denver, Colorado. Founded in 1972, the agency has continued to provide many services to a primarily Latinx/Chicanx population in Denver and to some extent broadly in the area around Denver and the State of Colorado. Proudly, the fiscal year of 2015-2016 was a banner year in all aspects pursuing the mission of the agency: To provide and advocate for culturally responsive essential human services and opportunities. During the 2015-2016 Fiscal Year: The agency finished the construction on the new facility located at W. 14th Ave. and Grove St. in West Denver. It was an ambitious project that included $900,000 in major rehabilitation of the building. The agency welcomed new Board members Stephanie Mirelez representing Adams County. After significant contributions over multiple years, Mauricio Waintrub, Stephanie Syner and Thiensa Nugyen resigned from the Board of Directors. With the help of Adams County HSAG funding, the agency opened an office in Brighton, Colorado to extend its services. The agency received an in-kind donation from the highly regarded law firm of Brownstein, Farber, Hyatt and Shrek in the preparation of a new comprehensive employee handbook. The banking relationship was moved from Midfirst Bank to CoBiz Bank with a secured 200k line of credit. Our esteemed Executive Director, Rudy Gonzales and the agency received the 2016 White House Champion of Change award for its support of the ACA healthcare legislation. Our Fiscal year end 2015-2016 audit revealed no fiscal findings. During this fiscal year the agency continued to grow in the scope of its services, in the quality of services rendered and in its reputation. It continued to advocate for those less fortunate and for those who live outside the mainstream of the economy and the culture. After more than five years on the Board of Directors and last few as President, I am proud of our many accomplishments, growth and outstanding service we provide our communities in Denver Metro and Colorado. Michael G. Sawaya President of the Board of Directors

rudy gonzales EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Estimados Todos: Our 2015 – 16 agency campaign continued to demonstrate not only the positive and healthy community impact of our hard work, but the ongoing community need for culturally responsive, linguistically specific human services. Servicios de La Raza served or “touched” over 50,000 people across Metro Denver and Colorado in 2015 – 16. This was a year of significant growth for Servicios culminated with the addition of a new program: The Work And Gain Education and Employment Skills (WAGEES) program funded by the Latino Coalition for Community Leadership (LCCL) through the Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC). This program brought resources to Servicios to initiate a genuine community based effort in ex-offender community reintegration. In this program, our clients consistently express their gratitude and amazement at the plethora of services we offer in which they can engage in their struggle to successfully re-enter our society. In fact, our work in our health access program area was so successful that I was named, as a representative of Servicios de La Raza, as the 2016 White House Champion of Change for our work in support of the American Healthcare Act (ACA). Servicios engaged and enrolled the highest number of Latinx individuals and families in Colorado in health insurance. Through these programs, and in all of our service areas, Servicios de La Raza has become one of the strongest Latinx organizations in Colorado. However, this preeminence comes with a price. We are now continuously called upon by elected, appointed officials and community stakeholders of all sorts from the public and private sectors both locally and nationally to serve and engage not only in our areas of program expertise, but in the area of advocacy and activism for our communities. As a thriving self-determinant community based organization of color, we take pride in this civic engagement; however, resources continue to be needed so that we may continue our work in providing an important voice for our communities of color and poverty. As I look toward my eighth year of leading this autonomous organization, I can promise that we will continue to provide: the light of service, the sword of truth in justice, equity and peace, in, and for our underserved and marginalized Colorado communities. En Comunidad, Rudy Gonzales Executive Director

VISTAS

VICTIMS IN SAFE TRANSITION & SELF-SUFFICIENCY

The VISTAS program provides culturally and linguistically responsive Case Management and Legal Victim Advocacy services to English and Spanish-speaking, Latinx victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and general crime in the Denver Metro area. This year we have accomplished many great things! We moved into the Rose Andom Justice Center, and successfully engaged with parents in the community to talk about domestic violence and sexual assault. We hosted our first Art Contest for Teen Dating Violence Month and completed our “Pets and Family” project with 167 surveys. The surveys were conducted in tandem with

3

the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work, to advance groundbreaking research about the dynamics of domestic violence and animal maltreatment. We also wrapped up our STRIVE project that helped engage families, children and schools to foster healthy relationships as well as connection to resources for those in unhealthy relationships. Throughout this collaborative project, we provided assistance with parent engagement and facilitated parenting classes in four high-risk schools in Denver. As our program continues to grow in service to survivors of victimization, sustainable funding remains an economic imperative.

BES

BASIC EMERGENCY SERVICES The Basic Emergency Services (BES) Program continues to provide clients with access to a food pantry, clothing bank, child passenger safety education and installation training, application assistance, case management, community resource events, and other emergency resources as needed. BES has experienced an increase in clientele as the need of the community continues to grow.

The food pantry is most commonly sought out by clients showing a great need for access to food. Partners of BES that provide large food contributions include Food Bank of the Rockies, We Don’t Waste, St. Anthony’s, and Denver Food Rescue. We Don’t Waste, uses an inventive way to reduce food losses by partnering with restaurants, farms, and other businesses and provides the BES food pantry with year-round assistance to keep the pantry full.

5

BES holds community resource events to provide assistance to those in need during financially straining times throughout the year. Events include: Ready for School, assisting youth with backpacks, school supplies, and school snacks; A Warm Winter, offering winter jackets and warm clothing for those in need; Feeding Families, providing individuals and families with Thanksgiving food baskets; and Christmas en Comunidad, providing holiday food baskets as well as children’s toys for families in need. The BES program continues to adapt to the needs of the community by expanding services and community resource events.

HELP

HEALTH ENROLLMENT, LITERACY & PROMOTIONS In an effort to further consolidate the variety of services offered under our Health Enrollment (CCARES) program, we changed the program to Health Enrollment, Literacy and Promotions. With the expansion of services and focus area under the Ventanilla de Salud (VDS) we thought Health Promotions would be more inclusive of all that our staff do under this program. As our program staff have also positioned our agency as a go-to in Health Literacy, the name change is more reflective of this as well. We continue to serve the community in enrollment into Medicaid/CHP+ as a Medical Assistance Site (MA) for the State of Colorado, as well as assisting community into the Colorado Marketplace for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Under the Ventanilla de Salud, SDLR continues to work with CREA Results and CAHEP to increase the awareness, knowledge and access to care for many in our community under a wide spectrum of health issues impacting Latinos.

YES

YOUTH EXPERIENCING SUCCESS

The YES Program provided one on one individualized case management, job readiness training, career exploration, assistance with tuition, tools, transportation as well as linkage to community resources to high-risk, lowincome youth ranging from the ages of 16-24. Youth were also provided with employment opportunities either through subsidized or unsubsidized employment. The YES program exceeded expectation in placing youth in meaningful employment as well as vocational trainings. In addition to working with inner city youth, the YES Program hosted the first La Raza Youth Leadership Program since taking it over in the fall of 2014. There were a total of 18 participants who successfully completed the program. La Raza Youth Leadership Program provides Latinx high school students, grades 10 -12, an opportunity to achieve their full leadership potential by participating in an intensive leadership program. La Raza Youth Leadership Program believes in social justice, quality

9

education, human rights, environmental justice worldwide and the advancement of the Latino community. The Program welcomes and encourages differing philosophical views to promote the learning experience. The YES Program also provided Kinship services through a partnership with the Denver Department of Human Services. The Kinship program (KISS) was designed for staff to work with kinship families to help them identify any needs in their home. The objective of this collaboration with DDHS is to provide community based supportive services to kinship families caring for children in out-of-home care. Statistics prove that children suffer a less traumatic experience when placed in a relative or kin like home. The KISS team has been able to provide assistance with clothing, food, furniture, utilities, rent, mortgage, extracurricular activities, benefit application assistance, transportation and any other essential needs.

MENTAL HEALTH The Mental Health Program is committed to expanding and improving services. As such, all clinicians were trained in offering trauma specific interventions such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). In an effort to ensure SDLR remains culturally responsive and committed to social justice, the Mental Health Program developed the Cultural Responsive Committee (CRC). The concept of cultural responsive practices is an ongoing process and therefore it is imperative that as an agency we are constantly assessing agency policies, procedures and practices. The CRC is committed to addressing and discussing current social inequities impacting marginalized communities.

11

The Mental Health Program is proud to announce the Substance Abuse Program is now offering DUI levels I and II classes as well as court mandated classes for minors charged with possession. The goal of this program expansion is to continue meeting the needs of the populations that are underserved and lack access to affordable mental health services due to linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic injustices.

LA GENTE The LA GENTE program at Servicios de La Raza serves individuals living with HIV. Participants include straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer/ questioning (LGBTQ) men, women and youth. La Gente is a bilingual program specializing in providing client-centered support services that assist people living with HIV (PLHIV) so that they understand their diagnosis, gain access to medical care, emotional support, and other resources and assistance that meet their needs. Through La Gente’s various services, clients learn to self-manage their health and thrive with HIV. By serving a vulnerable and disadvantaged community, La Gente is an integral part of a coordinated system of care providing crucial HIV treatment and care across the Denver Metro Area. Although La Gente provides HIV-specific services, it’s our responsibility to inform and engage our communities in order to minimize incidence of HIV. By providing outreach, risk reduction, and prevention services when able, the program strives to provide full-circle services to the communities and people who need them most.

13

Program staff were essential in the execution of a needs assessment with Latino PLHIV for the Denver HIV Resources Planning Council so that we could better understand needs/challenges of clients. Our goal is for clients to successfully self-manage their HIV. La Gente began its first Spanish-speaking support group for HIV positive women and are looking to bring support groups to other PLHIV who need this support system.

La Gente commemorated the rededication of The Grove: Colorado AIDS Memorial at Commons Park. The Grove is a natural space for peaceful reflection honoring Coloradoans who have lost their lives to AIDS-related illnesses, those who cared for them, and all others living with or affected by HIV. The rededication of The Grove gave Servicios the ability to honor and remember Colorado Latinos who have lost their lives since the beginning of the epidemic, those we’ve proudly and passionately served since 1996, and those we continue to call familia.

ACCESS

ADULT CAREER COUNSELING & EDUCATION SUPPORT SERVICES The ACCESS program has supported male and female parolees as they transition back into society from incarceration. The focus of the program is to build partnerships with agencies who serve similar populations, or provide services that would directly benefit this population. An emphasis has been placed on finding housing programs to address the large percentage of clients who are paroled homeless. Because Servicios has such a wide variety of program offerings, the ACCESS program has truly hit the ground as a one-stop-shop providing complete wrap-around services for many clients.

15

Some of the highlights of these offerings are the SDLR Mental Health program which is an Approved Treatment Provider by the Colorado Department of Corrections, the BES program which has helped clients manage their most basic needs, and the HELP program which has assisted ACCESS clients in applying for and gaining a better understanding of Medicaid benefits.

COMMUNITY RESOURCE EVENTS HOSTED BY BASIC EMERGENCY SERVICES The Basic Emergency Services program provides holistic support to low income individuals and families through a continuum of services that address the varied and intersectional needs that clients face. Throughout the year, during especially financially straining times, BES organizes community resource events to help improve not only the health and quality of life of clients, but also to relieve some of the financial burden. These events include:

GROW YOUR GARDEN Growing a garden helps individuals and families become more self-sufficient and able to have access to healthy, fresh produce. BES staff and volunteers planted a garden for clients to access at Servicios de La Raza and organized donations to provide clients with 397 transplants to grow their own gardens at home.

BES MARKET MONDAYS Every Monday in the summer, BES hosts a mini farmer’s style market with fresh vegetables and fruit that is available for all community members.

READY FOR SCHOOL Families in need are provided age appropriate school supplies and backpacks in order for students to start the school year prepared. This year we distributed 110 backpacks.

19

A WARM WINTER BES collects donations year-round to make sure that clients have access to warm clothing and coats through Denver’s cold and snowy winters. This year, we distributed 435 warm coats.

CHRISTMAS EN COMUNIDAD During Christmas time BES works to not only provide families with holiday food baskets, but works hard to ensure all children receive a new toy for Christmas. This year we distributed 342 Holiday Food Baskets & 896 Toys!

FEEDING FAMILIES Donation drives are organized in order to provide families with holiday food baskets that include a full size turkey and all of the fixings to make a holiday meal that feeds a family of four or more. This year, we distributed 572 Thanksgiving Holiday Food Baskets!


GALA Servicios de La Raza’s 2016 Raices Latinas Gala was held at Denver City Center Marriott. Due to the generous support from our sponsors and attendees, Servicios de La Raza successfully raised over $58,000 for our services! Our third annual gala provided a great opportunity for supporters to celebrate the incredible work of Servicios de La Raza, as well as recognize community members who work tirelessly for social justice and equity. 9News Reporter Jonathan Gonzalez hosted the evening as Master of Ceremonies. Former White House Deputy Director of Public Engagement and Granddaughter of Civil Rights Activist Cesar Chavez, Julie Chavez Rodriguez served as the Keynote Speaker for our event.
