Creciendo Juntos (CJ) means “growing together” and was launched initially as a fiscally-sponsored program of Piedmont Housing Alliance. CJ was formed in response to an urgent need for culturally responsive services for the growing Latinx community in Charlottesville, Virginia.

 

Currently CJ is an independent 501c3 and a leading Latinx organization that provides year-round workshops, forums and resources for Latinx communities and Latinx-serving organizations. We are directed by a volunteer board and partner broadly to help strengthen Latinx families’ connections within our community. The mission of Creciendo Juntos is to provide a platform for the voices, needs and wants of the Latinx community in Charlottesville and surrounding counties through education and leadership development. As agents of advocacy and equity, our volunteer network of individuals and organizations strives to strengthen Central Virginia by ensuring that all Latinx individuals have access to the opportunities they need to become resilient leaders in our communities.
