How are you making a difference by donating to Gandara?

If you’ve arrived at this page you may have already decided you’d like to help support the 13,500 families we serve every year throughout Massachusetts. With so many wonderful non-profits in our region, why us? We at Gándara believe in the whole being. We use wrap-around approaches to treatment. We recognize the individual’s needs but take it a step further to understand their environment, family life, all of the outside elements that may be contributing to where the individual is at the moment they walk through our doors.

By donating to Gándara you help us to continue our mission to promote the well-being of Hispanics, African-Americans, and other culturally diverse populations, through innovative, culturally competent behavioral health, prevention and educational services. Whether treating a mental health, substance use, or youth emotional disorder, we use compassion and expertise to make sure every one of our clients is provided with the best care available to them.

We couldn’t do it without the support of people like you!
