“We opened the doors to Taller de José with a general concept of “a ministry of accompaniment,” but our hearts remained full of questions of how this ministry might best serve the Little Village community. When the first opportunity arose to accompany someone outside the four walls of our office—someone who was capable and smart but lacked confidence and specific knowledge—we said yes and have not looked back. That first accompaniment has turned into thousands, and each and every day there are Compañeras all over Chicago walking with their clients, helping them to access resources.”
