The Latino Connections program provides socialization opportunities, educational workshops, support services and linkages to community resources for recently arrived Latina immigrants living in Port Chester. Attendance is free and babysitting is provided for 8 to 10 children during the sessions.
Socialization meetings are informal and open to any new Latino immigrants in the community on a drop in basis. Socialization groups provide an opportunity for new immigrants to learn about their community and find ways to connect to friendships as well as a network of community supports. The group currently meets once a week for two hours to discuss issues of concern that can then be addressed through individual sessions and support services at other times during the week. Each week there is an expert guest speaker who addresses subjects such as: nutrition; child care; domestic violence; employment; community resources; women’s health issues; budgeting; schools and parent involvement. This is followed by a question and answer session and then socialization and group projects.
