For over 20 years, CIELO has been the area’s only nonprofit dedicated to serving Latinx high-need individuals and families through educational programs, mental health counseling, sexual assault/domestic violence programs, employment services and cultural celebrations. Our goal is to promote community, self-sufficiency and leadership of Latinx and other diverse populations in the South Puget Sound area. We are a vibrant intercultural center for the Latinx and wider community where all individuals are allies and resources for each other.

CIELO’s VISTA member will increase awareness of CIELO’s services among the low-income Latinx community & CIELO’s potential community partners. The end goal is to increase their awareness of & participation in CIELO services to help Latinx low-income individuals & families gain education & sustainable employment to overcome poverty. The project will also build CIELO’s capacity to conduct effective outreach strategies & materials along with designing the methodology for determining effectiveness of such strategies. The VISTA will work with staff & marketing consultants to design, implement & monitor a comprehensive communications plan targeted to vulnerable populations in the Latinx community, community partners, donors & the general community. The plan will include the use of online media (including social media), storytelling, the arts & other nontraditional communications methods. The work will serve as the basis for all future communications efforts of the agency.
