La Cultura Cura is a transformative health, learning, justice, and healing philosophy that recognizes that within individuals’, families’ and communities’ authentic cultural values, traditions and indigenous practices exist the path to healthy development, restoration and lifelong well-being.

As a non-profit, 501 c-3 organization, since its inception, NCN has focused its efforts on the healing, developing and reinforcing of Latino boys and men based through the development of “circulos” (extended kinship networks). As a result of the overwhelming need locally and nationally, the National Latino Fatherhood & Family Institute (NLFFI) was launched.
NLFFI serves as NCN's policy, advocacy and training arm to assist national and community organizations develop and implement programs that resonate with Latino families and communities.
