A support group for Latina women
In cooperation with the Infant Mortality Prevention Program, COMADRES is a support group for Latina women. This group was created in response to a great need in the Latina community for building a network of mothers, sisters, cousins and neighbors that can be lost when one immigrates to the United States. For many women, this is the first time they are alone at home with no one to converse with and this solitude can lead to depression, which negatively affects relationships with family and friends. COMADRES helps prevent isolation and provides opportunities for women to network, build new relationships, relax, and find support in our community.
