Since the first Fiesta of Hope fundraiser I attended three years ago, I have been inspired by the work Adelante Mujeres does for Latina women and girls right here in our community. It inspired me so much I became a Board member.
Adelante is the leading nonprofit organization focused on building leadership and economic opportunity for low-income Latino women and families in Oregon. Their programs provide holistic training and support to more than 2000 individuals and families each year.
The challenge is, of course, that they’re growing! With increased program support, they’ve doubled in size and capacity to serve the Latino community. They’ve purchased a new space, but need help in transforming the unfinished space into early childhood education classrooms; adult education spaces; a commercial kitchen and more.
I encourage you to listen to Araceli’s story and make a tax-deductible donation to the Capital Campaign. Pledges are welcome, online donations are easy and every dollar helps.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donations and passing on this link to your networks, because when ‘women rise up,’ the whole family and community benefits.
