Each year, the Christ Church YMCA nominates a person or community partner who's given of their time, talent and financial resources to the Y's mission.
Plaza Mariachi/Hispanic Family Foundation
Area of Y Involvement: Community partner in youth development
"How do I begin to describe the impact the Hispanic Family Foundation and Plaza Mariachi have had on the Christ Church YMCA? The partnership started when our communities came together for Welcome Week. We invited Diane Janbakhsh to our center in hopes of creating a small event for the diverse population we serve. That event turned into a bilingual children’s story time, which has now grown into a bountiful relationship involving full support and focus by our CCY Board.
"The compassion and love shown by the Hispanic Family Foundation and Plaza Mariachi are values the Christ Church YMCA strives to build. We are blessed to call them a partner in the goal of serving New Americans of all faiths, cultures and beliefs in southern Davidson County." —Roger Grove, Operations Executive, Christ Church YMCA
