the project

Summer after summer, as mothers, we face the challenge of finding affordable activities to support our children. Each year, we grapple with limited options and financial constraints, striving to provide enriching experiences for our families. Frustrated by this recurring struggle, we, determined mothers, have decided to take action. Coming together as a united force, we recognize the need to understand the root causes of our difficulties and to create sustainable solutions for ourselves and our community. Our mission goes beyond merely addressing the immediate issue of summer activities. Instead, we seek to build lasting relationships within our group and the broader community, identifying gaps in existing support systems and working together to fill them. This project, "Latina Immigrant Mothers Taking Action: Bridging Summer Gaps," aims to shed light on the challenges we face in our quest to provide for our children. By sharing our experiences and aspirations, we hope to inspire others to join us in our mission, turning struggle into strength and creating a better tomorrow for families in our community. Utilizing the budget allocated for eight summer events, we are poised to make a meaningful impact and empower our community, bridging the summer gaps for our children and families.

why we're doing it

We're addressing the social issue of access to affordable summer activities, especially for Latina immigrant mothers in our community. Through our initiative, "Latina Immigrant Mothers Taking Action: Bridging Summer Gaps," we're tackling this challenge head-on. Submerging ourselves in the issue, we've come to understand the struggles firsthand and the need for sustainable solutions. Our passion for positive change drives us to provide diverse summer activities and a supportive community network. By empowering ourselves and other mothers, we aim to create a stronger, more inclusive community where our children can enjoy enriching summer experiences, regardless of financial constraints.
