Adelante Mujeres means “women rise up” in Spanish. We are among the leading nonprofit organizations working to educate and empower low-income Latina women and families in the state of Oregon. From infants to adults, we serve more than 5,500 families through our holistic programs annually.
Adelante Mujeres has launched a capital campaign to raise the $3 million needed to remodel our new building so that we can expand our services. Our new building on Main Street in the heart of Forest Grove is a welcoming place for the vibrant Latino community but half of it is unfinished space just waiting to be transformed into five early childhood education classrooms, two adult education spaces, a commercial kitchen, a Makerspace for our Chicas Youth Development Program, and much more. Learn more about our Capital Campaign and how you can make a difference.
