Mission: Provide a continuum of behavioral health, substance abuse and domestic violence services to individuals and families across washington to improve the quality of their lives and empower clients to participate in their communities at their highest level of functioning.
Programs: Behavioral health - we served clients by a cadre of bilingual/bicultural professional staff. There was an increased focus on increasing the professional training of new and current staff that created an improved professional team committed to providing evidence-based practices and providing the highest quality of service to all that we serve.
substance abuse and chemical dependency - consejo's chemical dependency program grew in the tacoma/pierce county area in 2014. Consejo continues to be the preferred specialty provider for latino youth and adults seeking to break the chains of chemical dependency. We served 500 unduplicated individuals through the program. Partnerships and collaborations with other community-based organizations, schools, and institutions were emphasized in 2014 resulting in increased referrals of clients seeking services and greater community knowledge of the program.
domestic violence and housing - 2014 saw consejo's domestic violence program stabilize and be recognized as a quality program deserving of private funding. Over 1,200 unduplicated survivors of domestic violence were served by consejo in 2014. Our 30 units of domestic violence housing were occupied over 90% of the time, giving that service to more than 30 domestic violence survivors and their children.
youth services in 2014 consejo's youth development programs continued to serve the most at-risk youth from the latino community. The program continued to be recognized as a quality provider of services with additional public funding and increased school-based partnerships. The annual youth conference was held in 2014 resulting in over 100 youth being exposed to positive role models and the development of positive protection factors and reduced risk factors.
