In Maryvale last year, 31 promotoras became hand-raisers and helped open the Isaac Community Center. With this opening, families in the neighborhood had a place to go to learn about available resources and a familiar, friendly face to help them find the ones right for them.
Now, not only are these promotoras acting as a resource in the facility, but they are also leading the Maryvale taskforce to continue growing and strengthening the neighborhood.
Because of the success we have seen in the Isaac Community School District, we are working with Promotora Hope Network to potentially expand to more Maryvale school districts and the southern areas of central Phoenix as we continue to meet with them quarterly to provide support for a growing program.
Just as it says in their hymn, with the teachings they provide, they change lives for the better. Thank you promotoras for being such an important part of our fight to break the cycle of poverty.

Hymno de Promotores
Como Palomas volando errantes Que les llevamos informacion
Esa es la meta de Promotores Que trabajamos con devocion
Con una idea que nos forjamos En nuestras mentes es trabajar
Para ayudar todas las familias Que son de nuestra comunidad
Sin inportar las advercidades Que se presentan al caminar
Con la enseñanza que proveemos Cambiamos vidas pal bien estar
No digo adios si no hasta luego Porque pensamos ir mas alla
Este es el Hymno de Promotores Que yo les canto con dignidad
Hymn of the Promotores
Like roaming doves that takes information
That is the goal of Promotores that work with devotion
With an idea that we forge in our minds, is to work
To help all the families who are from our community
Without the importance of adversity’s that present in our walk
With the teachings we provide we change lives for the better
I am not saying goodbye, but see you later, because we plan to go beyond
This is the anthem of Promotores that I sing to you with dignity
