Nuestra misión

La misión del Centro de Gándara es promover el bienestar de hispanos, afroamericanos y poblaciones culturalmente diversas, a través de servicios preventivos, educativos y de salud conductual innovadores y culturalmente competentes.

Our mission remains strong: With the recent events taking place across the country, we find ourselves in uncertain times. Acts of racism contradict everything we believe as a people and as an agency. Our mission, actions, and services speak to caring for our community, staff, and those we serve regardless of race.

Now, more than ever, Gándara Center is resolute in its determination to help the oppressed. We remain steadfast in our mission to champion the underserved, as we have for more than 40 years.

Know that we are here to help you through these difficult times. We will continue to support our core mission, to promote the well-being of culturally diverse populations as we have since our founding in 1977.

Nuestra historia

La misión del Centro de Gándara es promover el bienestar de hispanos, afroamericanos y poblaciones culturalmente diversas, a través de servicios preventivos, educativos y de salud conductual innovadores y culturalmente competentes. El Centro de Gándara, fundado en 1977, brinda servicios ambulatorios de salud mental y para consumo de sustancias a la creciente y desatendida comunidad hispana del oeste de Massachusetts. We serve over 13,000 people from all backgrounds per year at more than 40 locations across the state of Massachusetts.

Para apoyar a nuestras comunidades, aceptamos a muchas aseguradoras privadas y a MassHealth. Muchos de los programas son de bajo costo o gratis para los clientes que califican.
