Acción Comunal Latinoamericana de Montgomery County (ACLAMO), located in Norristown, is the only bi-lingual social service agency in Montgomery County. Since 1976 ACLAMO has worked to promote improved access to economic, health, educational, social and cultural opportunities for low-income individuals and families in Montgomery County, especially those of Spanish speaking background. ACLAMO offers low-income Latinos access to programs in employment, housing, supplementary education/drop-out prevention, family literacy, early prenatal care and primary care health services and parenting education.
Bryn Mawr College and ACLAMO have been connected in many ways since 2004:
During 2013-2014, Bryn Mawr and ACLAMO will be collaborating on a new college access program called ADELANTE for middle school student who attend the After-School Program.
