“Historias Que Sanan brings together working class Latino immigrant adults who are struggling with mental health challenges and (provides) a supportive and culturally appropriate group environment and individualized therapeutic support to meet their specific needs and support them through this period of economic recovery,” according to a program flyer.

Historias Que Sanan launched a pilot project earlier this summer with more than 30 leaders in the Mountain View Latino immigrant community. The Aug. 21 event will raise awareness and give the community an opportunity to support mental health in the Latino community. Guests can enjoy tamales and arepas as refreshments.

The development, when completed, will be home to over a million square feet of office, 10 acres of public parks and open spaces and 1,900 housing units — of which 380 will be affordable — according to the City of Mountain View.

The event will offer refreshments, interactive activities for families and live music presented by the Community School of Music and Arts, according to a press release. A majority of the open house will be hosted outdoors close to the Middlefield light rail station near 500 E. Middlefield Road, so guests are encouraged to use public transportation, or to walk or bike.

Google is requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for individuals attending the event and all attendees must provide proof of vaccination and a government-issued ID at the check-in desk, according to the press release. Any questions about the event or the development can be directed to [email protected]
