CAF have also had a series of breakfast meeting to connect with communities’ leaders to gather information. We meet a select group of prominent Latino Faith Based leaders in the New England and DC metro area to help CAF to shape a strategy by reaching and connecting the Latino community with the resources, information, training and tools available in the communities they serve.
The input gathered has been essential in developing an effective and realistic system for a nationwide collaboration that meets the needs of the Faith Based Community. In order to achieve our goals, CAF will have a forum through which clergy and other faith-based leaders can provide inputs and discuss the challenges and needs of their congregations and communities, so CAF can better support them. The breakfast concluded with a call to action session.
