About Adelante Mujeres:
We believe in providing holistic education and empowerment
opportunities to low income Latina women and their families to ensure full
participation and active leadership in the community.
Founded in 2002 by Bridget Cooke and Sister Barbara Raymond, Adelante Mujeres was created to serve an otherwise overlooked population: Latina women. Through their work with the Latino community in other local organizations, Bridget and Barbara noticed that Latina women did not actively participate in classes or activities, and often remained isolated in their homes. When Adelante Mujeres began to offer programs developed specifically for their needs, these women quickly found their voices.
Adelante Mujeres has been serving western Washington County for over 12 years and has worked with over 3,000 families. We strive to continually evolve our education and enterprise opportunities to meet the various needs of low income Latino families in our community.
As our organization continues to grow, our programs and services have expanded to serve Latino men as well as women, especially through our microenterprise and agriculture services and the Forest Grove Farmers Market. At Adelante Mujeres, we endeavor to strengthen Latino families as a whole because we believe a strong community requires the inclusion of everyone.
