La Colectiva de Delaware is a network of nonprofit providers, school and community leaders and Latino community members that inspires, advances and facilitates the development of sustainable collaborative approaches to improve the lives of Latino youth and families.
Initiated as a partnership between La Esperanza, the Matt Haley Trust and the Arsht-Cannon Fund in late 2017, the La Colectiva Network continues to thrive thanks to its new leadership and the engagement of a growing number of statewide and Latino community partners.
