Puertas Abiertas Community Resource Center (PACRC) bridges the gap between service providers and the Latino community by bringing together resources and providing culturally sensitive intake and guided referrals. They employ bilingual and bicultural staff with knowledge of the community and social justice and who understand and value the cultural, familial, and linguistic wealth of their clients. This project serves individuals who live and/or work in Napa County and were affected by the North Bay fires. Up to 50 participants will gain knowledge on holistic approaches to self-care/self-healing through a series of culturally responsive workshops. Through these workshops, PACRC hopes to inspire their clients to begin a healing process, continue a healing journey already in progress, or take a new direction in that journey by (re)connecting to cultural and ancestral knowledge by way of herbs and “remedios”, and other cultural practices working with the body, mind, and spirit. Trained, holistic healing practitioners will facilitate workshops by intertwining the wisdom of cultural practices and traditions used today.
