We celebrated the lighting of the first candle of Hannukah with Israeli Consul of the SW U.S., Mr. Daniel Agranov and Pastor Becky Keenan of One with Israel, in Conroe.  Our MCLatina members shared their hopes for the New Year with our community audience.  Many blessings  of Family and Community in 2015!  Read about Maria Banos Jordan’s journey to Israel in ConnexionW Magazine:




 “Strengthening families and inspiring inclusive communities through focused development guidance”.

The hard work is done within communities, and in lifting communities to their potential.  Our Council crosses communities, sectors, and barriers to reach practical solutions for all.

TXFC President, Maria Banos Jordan, visits Israel.  Common bonds of faith, family, and community connect across the globe.

A Montgomery County First:

 County Candidate Forum held in our Latino Community April 2014

A full house of local residents welcomed candidates for County Judge and County Commissioner.  This coordinated effort was the first such formal forum held for a rural Latino community in the county.  The Texas Familias Council was proud to be a part of this pivotal effort.  Every first builds a stronger community.

Launching Our 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!





Dr. Steven Murdock addressed Montgomery County leadership at our inaugural Symposium, and one year later TXFC helped residents secure a 1.4 million infrastructure grant for the Deerwood community.
