4. Latino Family Counseling Center, 1971-1999 (bulk 1985-1995)



The Latino Family Counseling Center series documents both current and past programs and their administration. The series contains correspondence (mostly from state agencies), interoffice memoranda, program descriptions and procedures, client statistics, and publicity materials. Also included are resource files containing pamphlets, brochures, flyers, and studies produced by government agencies and other social service organizations on substance abuse, health issues, housing, and legal issues. Two counseling and advocacy services eventually branched off to form their own departments. The Community Health Project became a separate department in 1990, which today is known as the Public Health Unit and focuses on AIDS education and health awareness issues. The Elder Services Department, established in 1977, administers the Aliancianos Social Club and the Adult Day Health Center. These materials are found in the Series 5, Public Health Unit and Series 6, Elder Services.

For more history on La Alianza Hispana's counseling programs, both past and current, see the historical note as well as descriptive narratives in Series 1, Executive Director: Organizational History and Series 2, Grants and Contracts.
