Southfield, July 16, 2008: Comcast, as part of its ongoing community service and outreach efforts, has announced its donation of a $10,000 grant to Latino Family Services, an organization whose mission is to provide and coordinate comprehensive human services to residents of Wayne County with particular emphasis on its Latino residents. 


Made available through the Comcast Foundation, the grant will underwrite the Youth Adelante (Moving Forward) program, which provides youth participants with job readiness training, computer training, academic tutoring, and college preparation.


The primary goal of Latino Family Services is to develop and operate a service system, which assists and supports families in their efforts to improve their social, health and educational functioning; enhance their community environment; and increase economic self-sufficiency.


Youth Adelante is one of several programs aimed at helping children. Through this program, Latino Family Services seeks to provide youth with the necessary tools to motivate and prepare them to further their education. 


“There can be no greater cause than educating our youth and preparing them for the future,” said Comcast Regional Senior Vice President Dave Buhl.  “From businesses to communities, we all benefit from an educated workforce that is prepared to meet the needs of a competitive job market.”


“For 36 years, Latino Family Services has supported families in their efforts to improve their social, health, and educational well-being, as well as increase their economic self-sufficiency,” said State Representative Steve Tobocman.  “I congratulate LFS on receiving $10,000 from the Comcast Foundation for the Youth Adelante program, and I thank them for their continued impact on our Southwest Detroit community.”


A community agency providing family, youth, seniors, AIDS, and developmentally disabled persons services Since 1971, Latino Family Services has been an established and trusted resource in the community, with long-standing relationships that facilitate collaboration with local schools, hospitals, businesses, and government agencies.


Each month, over 800 residents of Southwest Detroit and Wayne County access resources and services through any of the three focus areas offered by LFS: Clinical, Prevention and Adult Education. Latino Family Services is fully accredited by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Health Organizations (JCAHO). Contact (313) 841-7380 for more information.
