Aid Disabled Latinos
10 outreach posters
World Institute on Disability
Latinos with disabilities in the United States are caught in a bind: their double minority status greatly increases their likelihood of unemployment, poverty, and inadequate health care. Many Latinos are deeply reluctant to ask for help, while few disability or vocational service agencies offer culturally relevant Spanish-language outreach and information materials. As a result, families often bear incredible burdens as they try to manage illness and disability without any outside support.
We reach out to Latinos with disabilities and connect them with services that can help them find support and employment. Our fully bilingual program partners with agencies across the country to provide culturally accessible information and direct services to disabled Latinos and their families. But, no one can take advantage of a program if they don’t know that it exists. Your gift of just $10 will allow us to print 10 full-color bilingual posters and distribute them to community groups and government agencies to publicize this valuable resource. Getting the word out is the first step – enabling Latinos with disabilities to become fully participating members of the community is the ultimate goal. Please lend your support to help us get there!
