Welcome to the

Mexican Coalition

The Mexican Coalition for the Empowerment of Youth and Families has been supporting the Latina community in New York. Each year we help more than 18,000 families. Most of them are immigrants and essential workers. Our mission is to develop the individual, organizational, and community capacities that will enable Latinos and Mexican Americans to realize their full civic, cultural, and political integration into American society. We are an equal opportunity employer.
