Cuenta Conmigo (Lean on Me)

The Cuenta Conmigo program serves the Spanish-speaking population in our community as they manage a life threatening illness or grief associated with a death loss. The program works to provide support and assistance in addressing the feelings of isolation and despair associated with death loss while at the same time working to reduce stress and attempting to put control back in the lives of clients. The program provides these services to clients in their own language utilizing a person from their own culture.
