Established in 2000, Visión y Compromiso (VyC) is a nationally respected organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of underrepresented communities. Today, we are the only organization in California providing comprehensive and ongoing leadership development, capacity building, advocacy training, and support to over 4,000 Promotores and Community Health Workers.
Highly trained community experts and trusted members of their communities, promotores are characterized by servicio de corazon (service from the heart). They educate, empower and advocate for community change in linguistically and culturally sensitive and responsive ways sharing a desire to improve their communities so that all families may know a better way of life. Our Network of Promotoras and Community Health Workers provides the guidance and direction for our organization resulting in innovative programs and policies that respond to the needs of Promotores and the communities they represent.
VyC unites promotores and the organizations they represent as one voice behind a vision of a life with dignity and health for all.

“Knocking on doors when you have no idea what you will find on the other side, finding that sometimes they are not ready to hear what you have to say, sharing information that one day will be exactly what they need to hear.” - Promotora
