FuturoNow exists to stand in the gap for community- and faith-based organizations that do not have access to the large amount of resources provided through state and federal funding streams. FuturoNow acts as a bridge to these funding streams by applying for funds so that Latino-based organizations can replicate evidence-based programs and bring transformational outcomes to their communities.
FuturoNow is a collaboration between The East Los Angeles Community Union (TELACU) and Urban Strategies, LLC. FuturoNow’s growing network of CFBOs has granted opportunities to partner and provide holistic services to the communities where partners have long-standing and trusted relationships. The success has been astounding. By training more than 450 facilitators, relationship enhancement classes have been provided to more than 22,000 people and training and technical assistance have been provided to more than 220 organizations.
