Due to the positive impact in the community of Cameron Park and surrounding communities, we’ve experienced substantial growth in the demand for our services. And although we’d love to reach and serve 100% of the undeserved families in and around our area, our current building limits our capacity to do so. We've begun the procurement process for the construction of the new community building, so that we may be able to continue growth and allow for continued increase in the number of families we serve.

The new building is two-stories with offices and program spaces. It is a simple design but will be able to meet the high demand for services. The following are

  • There will be a easy access to our property from Paredes Line Road, one of the main arteries of Brownsville. Increased off-street parking will welcome more participants to our programs. Access for persons with disabilities is included in all aspects of the facility
     

  • Program spaces are adjustable to meet the needs of large groups (up to 80 persons) and private counseling sessions.
     

  • A dedicated space for the tutorial program will enhance the effectiveness of this program and will have easy access to outside exercise space.
     

  • A walking trail will benefit staff, participants, and local community members.

  • Advanced technology for distance/ teleconferencing healthcare for services will allow our professional healthcare partners to serve clients remotely, eventually including access to mental health services.

Proyecto will have greater flexibility to offer on-site programming while continuing to provide outreach services to other sites and venues.


As you know, the construction for our new community building has begun. Currently we have raised $2.7 million. We have $1 million that needs to be matched by Christmas (of which we only have $100,000 thus far). We humbly ask you, for your support to help us to reach our goal of $2.7 million more. Support us in funding the construction of the new building so that we may continue to serve more families and individuals and make a difference in their lives.
