La Luz Center is a family resource center devoted to addressing the ever-changing needs of the Sonoma Valley. Our mission is to empower our community through education, leadership, and self-advocacy. The quantity and quality of our services ensure that Sonoma Valley residents facing all types of challenges have the opportunity to actively participate in shaping the economic, social, and cultural aspects of our society. La Luz helps clients realize their full potential, drawing upon our community's wealth of knowledge, skills, and tradition in the process.

The mission of Líderes Campesinas is to develop leadership among campesinas so that they serve as agents of political, social and economic change in the farmworker community. This leadership has created an organization by and for campesinas. The approach emphasizes capacity building, democratic decision-making, advocacy, peer training and leadership development as well as a mixture of traditional and innovative education, outreach and mobilizing methods such as house meetings, arts, and theatrical presentations at community venues.
