Padres Unidos

The Sonoma County Padres Unidos (Parents United) program is an effort to provide education and support to recently immigrated monolingual Latino parents of high-risk youth. Parents and youth are brought together with support services and resources to ensure parents are empowered to guide their children on a safe journey into adulthood.
