We are excited to share that Ivon Mendoza will be joining us as a Social Work Intern this spring! We look forward to her working alongside our Community Organizers in North, South, and East Waco. Here is a message from Ivon:I am a Waco native. I attended Sul Ross Elementary, Caesar Chavez Middle School and was fortunate enough to attend both A.J. Moore Academy and Rapoport Academy my senior year. I am excited to join the Grassroots Community Development team as a student intern from Texas State University pursuing my Master’s degree in Social Work. I obtained my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Spanish from Howard Payne University in 2017. After returning to Waco, I was offered the opportunity to work at the Cen-Tex Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. My time at the Hispanic Chamber has given me a new and different perspective on what my community looks like and what it takes to tackle obstacles that may arise. As I embark on this new opportunity at Grassroots Community Development, I hope to understand what community means to individuals in the Greater Waco area and how I may be of assistance as they strive for a brighter future for children, neighbors, and communities. “There are no strangers here, just friends we haven’t met” – William Butler Yeats ...

Community in Action:Community is a word that gets used often these days. It’s used to designate a specific geographic area, speak of our place of belonging, or even discuss our support network. Regardless of how it’s used, community is important. It highlights our need for one another and reminds us that we’re not alone. Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to see community in action. Brook Oaks Neighborhood Association is a dedicated group of neighbors who want to see the continuous improvement of their neighborhood. One of their goals as an association is to support the education of youth in their community by supporting their 2 neighborhood schools. A few months ago, that became a little easier to do thanks to a small immediate impact grant through the Waco Foundation. Since this past September, members of the Brook Oaks Neighborhood Association have been able to volunteer at both Brook Avenue and West Avenue Elementary schools and provide meals for families at parent engagement events on both campuses. Most importantly, they’ve been able to re-establish relationships with their neighborhood schools and have reminded us that it really does take a village in the process. Thank you Brook Oaks Neighborhood Association for showing us what community looks like in action and thank you to the Waco Foundation for supporting these efforts in our community. Josh Caballero ...
