The Concilio is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that has served the Greater Dallas area for the past 30 years. Our Mission is to build stronger communities by empowering parents to improve the education and health of their families.
Our Parents Advocating for Student Excellence program began in 2002 and addresses the high dropout and low college enrollment rates of students in North Texas. The Concilio’s program helps the entire family understand how to prioritize education by teaching parents their role, rights and responsibilities as these relate to their children’s academic success.

An issue for the local Hispanic community in the early 1990’s was the lack of free education in Spanish regarding diabetes, which disproportionately affects this community. From this need came our Community Health program, which helps individuals overcome challenges with regards to health care. Click here to learn more about our Community Health program.
In 2011 our Community Health & Parent Involvement programs served approximately 5,500 individuals.
