Details: Since our humble beginnings in a local church basement in 1994, Neighbors' Consejo has been working with and for some of the most vulnerable members of our city. Our mission is to provide multicultural services for the homeless, addicted and low-income men, women, and families of Washington D.C., in the neighborhoods of Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant. We work to connect men and women to social and economic opportunities and to empower them to self-sufficiency. We were founded when a small group of concerned residents sought an effective way to alleviate the rising tide of homelessness and addiction they witnessed daily on the streets of their Mount Pleasant neighborhood. That core group became our first board of directors upon incorporating Neighbors' Consejo in 1995. In response to the high concentration of the City's Latino population in Ward One, we have placed a special emphasis on the provision of services in a linguistically and culturally appropriate manner right from the start. The spirit of mutual respect between ourselves as professionals and each participant in our programs animates our approach. Our name itself means Neighbors' "Council” and evokes the climate of dignity we seek to create in and through our work. In striving towards our goal of ending homelessness and poverty, we respond directly to the personal and social conditions that lie at their root cause. Each of our programs is a part of our overall continuum of care, which we designed to address the many complicated issues facing our program participants. The continuum is made up of three programs: Street Outreach, Substance Abuse Treatment and Mental Health Treatment.
