La Alianza Hispana's Mental Health and Public Health Programs focus on good social and emotional health of the Latino families across their life span. There is a tremendous need for programs offering culturally and linguistically competent services for Latinos. Increasing the volume of use of these services will have a positive impact on the organization as it capitalizes on economies of scale. The key is to build service capacity and capabilities in a cost efficient manner and continue to develop alternative revenue sources to pay for these services
