About Us

La Puerta Abierta/The Open Door is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization established in 2005. The mission of La Puerta Abierta is to ensure access to holistic, culturally and trauma-informed mental health support to the Philadelphia area Latin@ immigrant community through education, collaboration and service.


LPA offers pro bono individual and family counseling to youth and families who cannot access services elsewhere due to language, economic, legal and social barriers. Using a community-centered, service-learning model of care, LPA works and learns alongside those who are impacted by lack of documentation and displacement of family members. LPA also collaborates with other social service providers, shifting attitudes and service delivery practices to be more responsive to the complex experiences of our immigrant community members.
