Mission: We exist to empower our Latino families to thrive by creating opportunities for advancement and building bridges that unite and strengthen our communities.
Results: Thanks to the generosity of many caring individuals, businesses, community partners and public and private funders, we successfully served 4,532 people last year. We've helped over 200 people pass the Citizenship exam. We helped 81 people improve their English with the dedicated support of 78 volunteer tutors. Over 700 people acquired a Mexican passport or consular ID card and collectively they saved thousands of dollars and time by not having to drive to Portland. And, with of our community's support, we're continuing to grow our Raices Youth Literacy & Empowerment Project at two Bend elementary schools to increase educational success and develop young leaders to help expand our impact across Central Oregon.
