Check out the partners we have on-site at Multicultural Coalition to fulfill a variety of client needs.
Central District Health Department
Central District Health Department’s mission is to protect and improve the health and well-being of our community. Multicultural Coalition is a proud site-partner for CDHD’s bilingual community health worker program, bringing health-related solutions to clients.
MC’s on-site CDHD community health worker is also a Certified Lifestyle Coach. She assists clients change certain aspects of their lifestyles, like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. The year-long program also includes group support.
Heartland Workers Center
Heartland Workers Center’s mission is to improve the quality of life of Latino/a immigrant workers by promoting leadership development, workers’ rights, and civic engagement through legal information sharing, training, and organizing. HWC is dedicated to helping build a community that works for all across the Midwest. Their guiding iron rule is, “Do not do for others what they can do for themselves.” This rule is fundamental to HWC’s ability to develop leaders who are capable of promoting, protecting, and defending their rights.
HWC partners with communities across the state, including Columbus, Nebraska City, Norfolk, Schuyler, Omaha and now Grand Island. HWC collaborates in Grand Island with Multicultural Coalition through voter registration and education, especially with newly naturalized MC clients. Both agencies believe in the value of community organizing through intensive and intentional relationship development.
Immigrant Legal Center
Immigrant Legal Center’s mission is to welcome immigrants into our communities by providing high-quality legal services, education, and advocacy.
ILC is Nebraska’s largest immigration legal services nonprofit organization that employs full-time licensed attorneys and provides legal services for low-income immigrants. While its headquarters is in Omaha, Nebraska, through its collaborative partners, ILC has a regular presence in Lexington, Grand Island, Crete and South Sioux City, Nebraska; and Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Since 2016, ILC and MC have actively partnered to provide education and advocacy for immigrants living in Central Nebraska. Now, ILC and MC provide immigration legal services under one roof, with ILC acting as legal supervision for MC’s immigration consultation program.
