Con Mi Madre, a South Austin-based nonprofit that “empowers young Latinas and their mothers through education and support services,” named Johanna Moya Fábregas as its new executive director April 18.
According to a news release, Moya Fábregas came to the United States at age 14 after living in four Latin American countries.
“Con Mi Madre provides the kind of support system so many Latinas need as they continue to face discrimination, lack of access to resources, and other obstacles to post-secondary education,” Moya Fábregas said in a news release. “From a young age, I was able to see how my parents’ involvement in my education made a difference for me. I understand the Con Mi Madre model, and I know firsthand that it works.”
The nonprofit is located at 4175 Freidrich Lane, Ste. 200, Austin. 512-467-4483. www.conmimadre.org< Back to all impacts
