Thanks also to all those government official, non-profits, progressive thinkers and supporters that were willing to support an agency that was at the time of its founding a bit "out of the box" or perhaps better said, "ahead of its time". Barrios Unidos and its supporters have been  consistently consistent in their vision, mission, and values. Join us in celebrating 12 year of service to "Young People with Untapped Potential" by clicking on the following videos and sites that chronologically detail Barrios Unidos and their work focusing on Prevention, Intervention, and Community Education in Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC.
