CBDIO, through its funding partner First 5 Monterey County, strengthens the social safety net for Indigenous immigrant families with children ages 0-5 to ensure strong, well-supported families for the next generation. For this program, CBDIO’s Indigenous care coordinators collaborate with regional First 5 partners to provide culturally responsive integrated wrap-around services, strengthen community partnerships, and advance the accessibility and quality of early childhood development services and resources for Indigenous families in Monterey County.
Mamas Platicando y Sanando
Mamas Platicando y Sanando (“Mamas Talking and Healing”) is an interactive maternal mental health and early intervention program that supportspregnant women and mothers with children under five years of age to manage stress, reduce symptoms of depression, and facilitate connections with local mental health services. CBDIO’s community workers assist Indigenous mothers through relationship-based connections and support groups. Additionally, the community workers host platicas (“talks”) where mothers share useful tools and skills with pregnant and new mothers to support them in motherhood.
Labor Rights (Greenfield and Salinas)
Our Labor Rights Program trains and organizes workers. Through trainings on labor rights, workers are able to identify workplace violations and submit complaints to the appropriate agency to improve their working conditions and wages. Through this work, we have established worker committees in Salinas, Fresno, Madera, and Tulare, where workers have monthly meetings. Interpretation in indigenous languages such as Mixteco, Zapoteco, Triqui, Chatino, and Tlapaneco is provided during our monthly meetings.
