ACLAMO Family Centers, a charitable, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, provides educational programs, social services and health access to Latino and other low income residents by empowering them to succeed and become productive members of society.

ACLAMO stands for Accion Comunal Latinoamericana de Montgomery County, or the Latin American Community Action of Montgomery County. ACLAMO is also derived from the Spanish verb “aclamar,” which means “to proclaim, to shout forth.” We want our community to know that they, too, can achieve the American Dream of success.

Our vision: Our vision is for every family, every child and every adult to reach their full potential, independence and happiness.

Determination and Product Differentiation

Luis Marin is a man full of energy and a gift for marketing. When he opened his first Mexican restaurant in Chalfont, PA in 1992, he knew he had to differentiate his offerings from those available in the many Mexican restaurants dotting the countryside. Luis' strategy was to prepare only genuine, home cooked Mexican dishes.

To his dismay, he found that many diners were accustomed to eating "Americanized" Mexican food and the numbers of patrons only grew slowly. He hung in there, however, and his determination paid off.
