The Texas Familias Council Continues Growing Our Commitment and Mission of “strengthening families and inspiring inclusive communities through focused development guidance”.
Interaction between cultures is often stalled due to differences in perspectives and behaviors.
The hard work is done within communities.

MCLatina 2012 County Initiative
Celebrating, supporting, and promoting the progress of local Latinas in family life, professions, and leadership
Young Latinos develop a dual identity as they combine cultural traditions, values, and expectations with a very American perspective. Dr. Luis Torres from the University of Houston made a wonderful presentation on Dr. Zayas’ research on Latina mental health to a full house at Lone Star College Montgomery on March 30. Thank you State Farm Insurance, Lone Star College System, and Artemis Justice Center for your support of this invaluable event!
