Hispanic Alliance Senior Care

Welcome!

Welcome to the Hispanic Alliance Senior Care website! Our goal is to offer the community resources that support the needs and care of aging adults. Given the partnership of the care provider and recipient, we strive to provide information for resources that look after the well-being of each. We serve the community of Southeastern Connecticut and welcome your feedback to continuously improving this website.

Our Story

This website represents the outcome of a community-engaged learning experience project for long-term caregiving in the Hispanic community of New London, Connecticut  led by Connecticut College professors, Maria Amparo Cruz-Saco, Ph.D. and Mónika López-Anuarbe, Ph.D. Their early research revealed a lack of accessible information for caregivers in the community. Accordingly, they gathered the initial information for a culturally and linguistically competent website to help fill the “information gap” within the community.   Led by Migdalia Salas, Vice President of Advancement and Programming for the Hispanic Alliance of Southeastern Connecticut and supported by the Hispanic Alliance Mental Health Network we continue this vital project and in so doing recognize the importance of collaborating with community partners to ensure and manage the effectiveness and sustainability of the project. As such, with the activation of this website, the project aims to engage partnerships with community organizations today. 

Founded in 2000, the Hispanic Alliance of Southeastern Connecticut is committed to addressing the need for access to bicultural/bilingual resources for the Hispanic Community in the region through Strategic partnerships, collaborations, research, education and advocacy to promote public policy changes..a
