Join hundreds of Gandara staff, clients, and friends as we raise $10,000 more than we did last year, bringing us to $30,000 for the survival and well-being of children and families in our community.
For as little $20 raised in pledges, you can be a part of making sure a child has blankets on her bed, a teenager can access a bus pass to get to his summer job, a mother can put her items in storage as she escapes a violent situation with her kids, a homeless young adult can obtain an I.D. required for employment, and a baby can recover from a trauma with a sensory toy.
These are just a few of the ways Walkathon 2013 helped us make sure 200 families and children in Gandara progarms have what they need to heal and grow. Join us for a day of celebration, food and prizes, as we make an even bigger impact this year.
Gandara Center provides residential, mental health, substance abuse and preventive services for children, adults and families across the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. Founded in the Hispanic community, we value cultural diversity and strive to provide culturally competent, innovative services to a diverse community.

Prevention efforts aimed at changing or influencing personal, social and environmental factors that contribute to the initiation and escalation of drinking are essential.
