South Austin-based nonprofit Con Mi Madre celebrated its 10th anniversary with the annual Corazon Awards Gala on May 9. Con Mi Madre began in 2008 as an offshoot of the Junior League of Austin’s Hispanic Mother-Daughter program.
The organization, which provides mothers and daughters with educational support and resources, honored 10 Latina mother-daughter pairs at the event for their commitment to Con Mi Madre’s program. Con Mi Madre program participants begin educational programming when daughters are in sixth grade and continue through college graduation.
The nonprofit is located at 4175 Freidrich Lane, Ste. 200, Austin. 512-467-4483. www.conmimadre.org< Back to all impacts
