Describe the work of El Futuro:

We are a nonprofit outpatient clinic which provides bilingual, culturally-responsive mental health services to the growing Latino immigrant community in Chatham County and across the state. We offer therapy, psychiatry, and substance use prevention and treatment services.

How can people access your services?

Our largest clinic is in Durham, and we have a clinic in Siler City as well. Our Siler City clinic has been operating entirely via telehealth since March 2020. We are working as quickly as we can to restore in-person services in Siler City, and in the meantime we are continuing to provide virtual telehealth services. People can access these services on their cellphones with Zoom, and they have actually proven to be just as effective as our in-person services. In fact, for many people, it is easier to receive therapy sessions by phone because they do not need to miss work or school, or travel to the clinic.

How can people make an appointment?

The first step is calling our clinic at 919-688-7101. Our staff speaks Spanish and English and will walk people through the steps to get registered. We accept Medicaid, Health Choice, and Medicare, and also serve individuals without insurance.

How can our readers support you and your program?

There are many opportunities to volunteer, donate, or become a sponsor. Visit our website for details or follow us on social media: Facebook @elfuturoNC; Instagram @elfuturonc; or Twitter @ElFuturoNC.
