Started in 2009 by Dr. Matilde “Mattie” Castiel  and longtime Latinx community advocate Hector E. Reyes, the Hector Reyes House just celebrated ten years in Massachusetts. Its mission is to give Latino men a welcoming, culturally appropriate place to recover from substance abuse because people do much better in treatment in an environment that is both linguistically and culturally supportive.
