How It All Started...
Facing Our Own Challenges
When we were going through the struggle of caring for aging parents, we were not searching for help from formal health services but, rather, help from an informal, more familiar support system.
Our parents needed a deeper kind of attention, someone that could relate to their culture and language. We needed a way to keep a home and work life.
That’s were Centro De Amigos comes in.
Serving the large concentrated population of Latinos in Rockland
We found our calling serving the Village of Haverstraw’s latino community.
Communities that are usually left behind should have the healthcare resources they need to thrive locally, enabling seniors to age in the place they know and love. Centro De Amigos is the only adult care center in Rockland County that offers care to latino community.
We collaborate with local leaders, healthcare organizations, providers, caregivers, and universities to ensure that happens.
Why “Centro” vs. “Center”
Our members find comfort in a traditional program that is familiar and always involves swaying to that Salsa beat!
Everything is designed to be engaging and entertaining, with our local and remarkable staff making that a reality.
Moving quicker towards Local Resilience
Covid Has Pushed us to adapt
The pandemic has changed our business, so we’ve learned, and teach, resiliency and strength. Where our services were previously high-touch & deep rooted in culturally relevant ways, we now expanded our digital footprint and how we engage with out members remotely.
