I enjoyed visiting with some Hillcrest Neighborhood residents and helping them get rid of unneeded items by monitoring the dumpster on Overhill, along with Jim Abbotts! Thank you to Dumpster Day organizer Grace Cooke for facilitating such a productive event for the neighborhood!

Happy #HispanicHeritageMonth! Today, I'm delighted to highlight Isabel Lara! An immigrant from Ecuador who raised four children in the US, Isabel has spent three decades studying cross-cultural parenting styles and helping other families navigate child-rearing while dealing with the pressures of the immigrant experience. For over two decades, she has guided hundreds of families within the educational system to create a safe and caring environment that sets children up to be successful both at home and in their communities. Isabel draws from the lessons she has learned through her own experiences as well as the experiences of the families she has supported over the years. Her parenting workshops reflect tried and true, community-rooted best practices. Parents who attend the workshops transform themselves, thereby transforming their families and communities for generations to come.

In addition to her professional work, Isabel is the president of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Conference where she serves Concord's low-income families. She founded GANAS Community Organization to support Latino low-income students and their families. Serving as a board member for NAMI Contra Costa and as a Core Member of the Office of Racial Equity and Social Justice in Contra Costa County are other meaningful ways Isabel shows her love for our community. Isabel recently received the "Local Hero Award," at the La Concordia Wellness Center Gala, a well-deserved honor!
