Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Mission of Familias Unidas is Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.
We protect, promote and improve the health of persons with mental health conditions. Our goal is a high quality of life for all participants, ongoing improvement and successful reintegration into the community. We provide unconditional support & acceptance and empower persons to achieve self-efficacy to deal with their chronic condition(s) on a daily basis. Our organization was founded in 2011 by a group of family members and a consumer. Participation is open to any adult resident of Miami-Dade County diagnosed with a serious & persistent mental illness and other chronic medical condition(s). Familias Unidas provides a safe haven where individuals can gain confidence in their capacity to make life improving changes to yield better clinical outcomes. Participation is free and for life.
