Multicultural Services for the Most Vulnerable

The following organization assists individuals and families in the Washington, DC neighborhoods of Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant:

Neighbors’ Consejo is a bilingual non-profit, community-based organization that offers multicultural services to individuals and families that are suffering from addictions, homelessness, and poverty.  Neighbors’ Consejo strives to connect the men and women that are vulnerable in their communities to both economic and social opportunities in order to increase their level of self-sufficiency.

Even though Neighbors’ Consejo is primarily focused on issues like homelessness, substance abuse, mental health and co-occurring disorders in the Latino community, latino womanthey do also offer comprehensive services to all people in crisis or in need. For these and many additional issues, Neighbors’ Consejo has created a time-proven continuum of care. This continuum is made up of three programs: Street Outreach, Substance Abuse Treatment and Mental Health Treatment. 

Street Outreach – Since their humble beginnings in 1994, Neighbors’ Consejo has aimed to bring help directly to the streets, where community members need it most.  In the spirit of mutual respect, the professionals at Neighbors’ Consejo are determined to restore hope and dignity to their participants by linking them to outreach programs designed to assist the homeless, hungry, individuals with addictions or behavioral health concerns, and families in crisis.

Substance Abuse Treatment – Neighbors' Counsel’s Substance Abuse Program is certified by both the Department of Health and Addiction Prevention and Recovery Administration. Their substance abuse program provides services to participants at various levels of care. Not only do they maintain two transitional housing facilities (Casa Paz and Casa Libertad), Neighbors’ Consejo also offers outpatient programs, support services, environment stabilization counseling and social case work.

Mental Health Treatment – Neighbors' Counsel is certified by the Department of Mental Health and offers bilingual health services to the DC community. Through its mental health program, the qualified staff at Neighbors' Counsel provides the following services: assessment, diagnosis, medication, somatic treatment, individual or group counseling, and social work.
