Community Advocacy:

We seek to meet the needs of families through bi-lingual, bi-cultural support on both a long and short-term basis. Our drop-in advocacy support aims to help our community access resources and set goals to address issues such as housing, employment, education, domestic violence prevention, childcare and more.


We partner with professionally pre-licensed clinical counselors to offer free counseling and advocacy to youth, families and individuals. Our services provide support for people to learn and access healthy coping skills, stress management techniques and work on other issues as needed.
*Appointments will be virtual until further notice

“When I came here, the first help I received was from MCR. Whenever I need assistance or have questions, I come here and they provide me with the help I need in my language, and they always make me feel welcome. Now I want to give back to the center, so I volunteer.”

—Roberto, volunteer and former client at Mountain Community Resources
