For 26 years, we have maintained a non-profit organization offering a monthly food pantry and monthly community meetings plus resource referrals and local community work updates in support of women and our families.
We run a sewing cooperative project and an intergenerational community based organization that feeds, informs and works with the people of our community to move us towards social, economic and environmental justice.
The Food Pantry service provides food boxes to over 50 families on a monthly basis.
This program promotes cooperation and mutual aid among our membership base, thereby strengthening our ability to mobilize and take action.
Fuerza Unida organizes monthly meetings facilitated by representatives, which include other non-profit organizations, businesses, lawyers and/or government officials.
We offer a variety of workshops, training classes and presentations focusing on issues affecting our community.
The Thread of Justice is an alternative model for social, environmental and economic justice that provides a clean and safe job environment, a living wage, nurtures leadership development and business opportunities for displaced garment workers and elderly women from the local area.
Merchandise from the San Antonio Cooperative and our sister organization in Chiapas are available in our Southside location.
This is a summer long program that empowers young people between the ages of 13-17 to become forerunners in the struggle for social, political, environmental and economic justice. The young people develop leadership skills in community organizing and development, while preserving and learning about the cultural arts prevalent in the Mexican-American community.
