Mission Statement

The Mission of Mano a Mano is to empower immigrant and underserved families of Lake County, Illinois to become full participants in American life by providing quality programs and services that educate and establish links to essential community resources. Our mission is sustained by our respect for human dignity and our belief in the equality of all people.

Description

Founded in September 2000, Mano a Mano Family Resource Center opened its door and began services, thanks to the foresight of community leaders concerned with the needs of the rapidly increasing Latino population in the Round Lake area of IL. Many of these families were finding it difficult to adapt to their new communities because they spoke little or no English, lacked a high school education and did not have an adequate income.

Mano a Mano provides the resources to help families improve their quality of life and make a smooth transition into the community without erasing their cultural roots.

Mano a Mano serves clients all over Lake County Illinois, particularly in the Round Lake area as well as McHenry and Cook Counties and surrounding communities at large regardless of race, national origin, age, religion, creed, or disability.

Mano a Mano has successfully implemented the following programs:

Citizenship

- English as a Second Language

- GED

- Computer Classes

Employment Connection

Health Education

Information and Referral

Kindergarten Readiness

Other services include: Legal Referral, Mobile Clinic, Tutoring, Voter Registration, Community Garden.
