Highlighting Our Community Partner Grant Recipients – October
Comunidades Latinas Unidas En Servicio
Comunidades Latinas Unidas En Servicio (CLUES) is a first-time Westminster Community Partners grant recipient. CLUES is Minnesota’s largest Latino-led non-profit, founded in 1981 by and for Latinos. Its purpose is to ensure the advancement of social and economic equity and well-being for Latinos in Minnesota. Program areas include Health and Wellness, Arts and Culture, Economic Empowerment, and Advocacy and Community Engagement.
The grant from Westminster specifically supports the initiative of “Avanzando Juntos” (Advancing Together). The culturally responsive, research-based program assists first generation Latinx students to achieve success in their first year and gain the tools and support necessary to graduate college in four years. It includes workshops, community-building, mentorships, and support. Learn more about Avanzando through College.
