Familia: Was started about eight years ago by some Mexican women and a
few Americans. Their purpose is to assist a poor area called Genero Estrada that
is located about half way to the airport. Squatters probably started the area, but
now some people own the land where their homes are located. Many of the
shacks have dirt floors, no electricity, and no running water. The group has
been building a community center, about 45 x 60 feet. The kitchen feeds about
50 children a day. They also provide English, sewing, cooking, and make-up
classes. Their ultimate goal is to raise the standard of living for the communi-
ty to the point that it will become self-sufficient. They try to have a fund-rais-
ing dinner every February, with the children providing the entertainment. The
Familia is a charity recognized by both Mexico and the U.S. Internal Revenue
Service as they accept cash donations. To have a tour of the community center
or make a donation call 913-0037.
