Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio

Our mission

CLUES’ mission is to advance the capacity of Latino individuals and families to be healthy, prosperous and engaged in their communities.

Our vision

A thriving multicultural community enriched with confident individuals and families who contribute their voices, skills, entrepreneurial spirit and cultural richness.

Who we serve

Our services focus on the Latino family, yet our experience and capabilities enable us to serve individuals and families from all walks of life including new immigrants and low-income families who dream of a better future.

History of CLUES

CLUES was founded as Chicanos Latinos Unidos en Servicio in 1981 to provide culturally and linguistically relevant Mental Health services with four staff on the West Side of Saint Paul.

Since then, our program and services have grown to encompass a holistic approach to addressing the complex and interrelated barriers our community faces, including Economic Empowerment, Cultural Engagement, Arts, Education and other programming.

In 1991, our first Minneapolis office was opened, and in 2001 we moved into our current office on Lake Street. That year we also launched a capital campaign to build our Headquarters building on the East Side of St. Paul.

In 2005, CLUES changed its name to Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio as our programs, services and staff continued to grow and develop. Our services now include chemical health services, Latino elder programming, employment counseling and more.

In 2018, CLUES broke ground on a $7 million expansion to our St. Paul Headquarters building. Opened in 2019, the expanded building provides a new home for our Latino elder program, a Teen Tech Center, Minnesota’s only nonprofit Latino art gallery and increased meeting and event space.

Today, CLUES employs more than 110 staff and engages more than 600 volunteers each year in our work. Learn more about our Programs and Services or how to get involved today!
