MISSION

Adelante is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit cultural and advocacy organization serving low-income, Spanish-speaking, immigrant communities in Brooklyn and the greater metropolitan area.

Our mission is to facilitate social change and integration in American society by working with, advocating for, and organizing immigrant families for the attainment of basic rights, social justice, and equal opportunity.

We believe that lasting social change is best achieved by building long-term relationships based around creative capacity-building in an environment that recognizes and encourages a community’s unique cultural diversity.

We seek to develop culturally embedded programming that supports identity; that builds cross-cultural and inter-group skills and understanding; that helps heal the wounds of distress and exclusion as a result of immigration and that addresses social inequities through community building.

Building these relationships, we believe, is the key to affecting long-term social change that has the power to simulate, enrich, and empower the community from its roots.
