Community Impact

We've been empowering Latina women and their families since 2002,
and we won't stop until every Latino family is thriving. We envision a future where
Latinas are leading, every child is receiving a high-quality education, young Latinas
are reaching their dreams of going to college, and Latino entrepreneurs are flourishing.
