In 2007, The Hermana Project, an HIV/sexual health education program designed to meet the needs of young Latinas was implemented. The Hermana Project has evolved into the Madres Unidas Program we now offer to educate mothers (and fathers, too!) on sexual health and HIV. Madres Unidas is a 9-week intervention targeting Latina mothers. The program helps prepare Latina mothers and the many fathers who also are welcome to attend, to discuss difficult topics generally considered taboo (such as alcohol and drug use, risky sexual behaviors, STDs and HIV/AIDS) with their children and partners.
