Do you know Con Mi MADRE's story?
The drive behind the founding of Con Mi MADRE stemmed from a statistic that a Latina baby had less than a 1% chance of obtaining a college education. Initially named the Hispanic Mother-Daughter Program (HMDP) in 1992 as a project of the Junior League of Austin, the program set out to create positive change in the lives of young Latinas by empowering them to earn a college education. In 2008, the HDMP transitioned into its own organization, adopting the name Con Mi MADRE, becoming a freestanding and independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
About the Corazón Awards
Originally starting as a brunch, the Corazón Awards has turned into a momentous celebratory event. The proceeds from our 14th annual Corazon Awards will benefit our programs that serve our Con Mi MADRE Mother and Daughter teams. This year we celebrate our 15th anniversary as a non-profit, reflecting upon our trajectory and aiming for the future.
