Best Starts for Kids Grant will Expand Reach to Hispanic Families in Washington state


Manos Unidas is a proud recipient of a Best Starts for Kids grant to provide Home-based services to Hispanic families with children with disabilities under the age of 6 years old in the North King county region of Washington state.

We have been awarded a three-year innovation stage grant of $570,000.00 to launch and run our first U.S. based program to serve families!

Check out the list of the Home-based Services awardees, find our name and read more about the awarded organizations and their programs here.

Manos Unidas Home Based Services program, "Ayllu," is a New Community-Designed Model that will offer relationship- based support to families and primary caregivers of Hispanic children ages 0-6 years of age with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities (e.g. autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, multiple disabilities) in North King County.

Ayllu will use a proprietary video curriculum (the Ayllu video library!) to educate and empower families and provide home-based support through a promotora (community outreach) model. Through this personalized learning process, we aim to equip families with the knowledge and skills to support their child at home,

school, and in the community.

Follow us on our journey!
